We Believe Artists are Keystone Species of a Healthy Human Ecology


Western Montana’s place-based Arts and Ecology Artist in Residence (Pilot) program, Open AIR, connects artists with unique sites to promote cross-sector dialogue and collaboration, particularly between the arts and ecology and arts and sciences.
