4 Examples of Powerful Placemaking….
“A little-known but very interesting government agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, is quietly leveraging small amounts of financial assistance to make a big difference in helping communities across the country become stronger and more alive. Whether in Portland, Maine, Pendleton, South Carolina, the Kewa Pueblo in New Mexico, or another of the scores of locations that its Our Town program is assisting in all 50 states, the agency believes “creative placemaking” can strengthen “community identity and a sense of place, and help revitalize local economies.” I couldn’t agree more.”

The Park County Friends of the Arts and the 2011 Studio Tour Committee are proud to bring you the annual Park County Studio Tour. This year the Studio Tour spotlights the personal work space of 40 artists. From painters to potters and boat builders, this is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of the creative process and purchase original works of art in the private setting of artists’ studios.
The popular self-guided studio tour is held each year over two consecutive days highlighting accomplished regional artists. The tour provides a stimulating context for the public to discover the rich variety of work being produced in the Livingston area. We invite you to come meet some of the talented and renowned artists who make Montana such a creative place to live.
From barn studios in Paradise Valley to lofts in downtown Livingston and workshops outside Wilsall, see first hand how the studio setting inspires the art produced. We hope to meet you on the tour!
