The Emerson Cultural Center has successfully weaved an art community into the fabric of Bozeman. From hosting summer camps, art exhibits and gallery tours, to providing art education to thousands of children and adults, the organization is building community through the arts and culture. The space, a retired elementary school, is an ideal place for community events, the summer concert series, “Lunch on the Lawn,” and is home to 58 working studios for arts and culture related tenants.
The Emerson Grill, Emerson North, (wine bar) and Ecce Gallery, (private dining in an intimate gallery) serve critically acclaimed local & organic home-style Northern Italian cuisine. Dinner and a special show in the theater make for a perfect date night.
Home to three galleries, Jessie Wilber Gallery, the Weaver Room, and the Emerson lobby, you’ll find traditional and innovative work, all with an educational focus.
The next few months bring a plethora of classes, celebrations and new exhibits. Many of the classes can be taken on an individual basis, so if you’re simply passing through, you can jump right in!
Classes run at various times through November, 2018
The fall art education classes that can be taken through the Emerson Cultural Center include:
- Oil Painting
- Acrylic Painting
- Kids Sculpture
- Creating with Clay
- Jewelry Design
1st and 3rd Thursday of the Month
Each class focuses on a different medium and unique cocktail, (think: merlot and molds).
