The YAM's current exhibitions, Face to Face, Wall to Wall and Unconscious Bent are world class! If you have not had the opportunity to view these shows, you truly are missing out...the one and only contemporary art museum in the region offers some of the best art in the area!

This is a great little art museum with well designed permanent and traveling exhibits, which would do a city larger than Billings proud. The caliper of the traveling exhibits is amazing, and they are usually thought-provoking and ALWAYS beautifully presented. YAM provides a nice balance of modern and western art in new and interesting ways. I always enjoy my visits here and highly recommend that you visit soon.

This museum is well worth a visit, multiple visits even.
My favorites are right next to each other, the Signac downstairs under the stairs, and the installation piece that reacts with the weather.

The Yellowstone Art Museum opened two new exhibits on Thursday, March 20th. One deals with Surrealism and offers many examples of fine art in various styles. The other exhibit has a picture created entirely of spools of thread, must be seen to appreciate. Upstairs also look tor the young man carrying his father and the security officer. Staff members are friendly and the docents know the material very well and are able to give you first hand insight into the art directly from the artists themselves.

I was in Billings for a family medical emergency...the winter weather was extreme...I went to the museum and really enjoyed myself...the natural light was the first thing I noticed....the display of space was very different from other museum....the staff was great and the children's art was fun to look at...and so full of energy...I would go back and take my family....all museum need to be visited and enjoyed...its just part of the visit when traveling
