Tippet Rise Art Center is a unique cultural destination which blends art, architecture, and classical music on an iconic and sweeping Western landscape. Located against the backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains on a 12,000-acre working sheep and cattle ranch, the art center presents internationally-acclaimed musicians during its annual summer concert season and through monthly virtual performances and other online events. During the summer of 2021, its outdoor sculptures by the world’s foremost artists and architects can be toured on foot and by bicycle.
Monumental works of art are placed atop knolls and nestled into valleys throughout the center. Many are site-specific commissions that aim to erase the boundaries of art, nature, and architecture. Artworks set within the landscape include sculptural structures by the innovative Ensamble Studio, including the Beartooth Portal, composed of two vertical rocklike forms, each 29 feet tall, that lean together at the top; the similarly designed 26-foot-tall Inverted Portal; and the 98-foot-long, Domo. Three other site-specific and commissioned works at Tippet Rise include Daydreams by Patrick Dougherty, Satellite #5: Pioneer, by Stephen Talasnik, and the newest installation, Xylem, by Francis Kéré. Two sculptures by Mr. Talasnik are installed within the Olivier Music Barn. Tippet Rise is also home to monumental works by the internationally renowned sculptor Mark di Suvero, Beethoven’s Quartet (2003, steel and stainless steel, 24 ft. x 30 ft. x 23 ft.) and Proverb (2002, painted Cor-ten steel, 60 ft. x 17 ft. x 31 ft.), and two works by Alexander Calder on loan from the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden: Two Discs (1965) and Stainless Stealer (1966).
