Tippet Rise Art Center

Classical music performances, large-scale sculpture installations, spectacular natural settings all in the heart of Montana’s big sky country.

Tippet Rise Art Center is a unique cultural destination which blends art, music, architecture, and nature. Located in Fishtail, Montana, and set on a 12,500-acre working sheep and cattle ranch, the art center is roughly midway between Billings and Bozeman and north of Yellowstone National Park.

From June through September, visitors can experience monumental artworks by some of the world’s foremost artists and architects via 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, or by sculpture van tours. A highlight of every summer is the art center’s annual music season, featuring concerts by internationally acclaimed musicians held in performance spaces indoors and out. Films, special events, educational workshops, and other online programs are also held throughout the year.

Situated throughout the ranch are several large-scale, site-specific sculptural structures by artists and architects including Ensamble Studio, Patrick Dougherty, Francis Kéré, and Stephen Talasnik. Tippet Rise is also home to works by artists Mark di Suvero, Ai Weiwei, Marie Watt, and Isabelle Johnson. Two works by Alexander Calder are on loan from the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
