With an old warehouse slated to be torn down in Bozeman’s historic northeastern neighborhood, a temporary, pop-up art installation aims to celebrate the space and test whether Bozeman would support a permanent art museum.

 Every year, the cowboy spirit comes alive in eastern Montana at the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale. Thousands of people don their best boots and hats to attend the four-day event.   

On a muddy, overcast Sunday, bronc riders and horse breeders corral mares with names like Spider Woman and Lunatic Lucy into gated chutes.

There, they’ll wait for their riders to mount.
