Arts & Culture

The Yellowstone Art Museum, located on North 27th Street in the heart of downtown Billings, exhibits, interprets, collects, and preserves art, with an emphasis on Montana and surrounding regions, for the enrichment, education, inspiration, and enjoyment of all.  In March 2018, Bryan Knicely replaced longtime YAM director Robyn Peterson, who left in December 2017. Knicely recently served as the executive director of the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science, in Southwest Indiana. Under his leadership, the museum earned its re-accreditation in 2017. Knicely brought world-class exhibitions from national and international artists to Evansville.
