Of the many large-scale sculpture and art parks in the world, including Marfa, Storm King, Tickon, Yorkshire, Ekebergparken, Hakone, and Foundation Maeght, none is more ambitious in vision and scale than Tippet Rise, an 11,500-acre arts venue in south-central Montana, nor in a more spectacular setting. Nestled in the mountains north of Yellowstone National Park, the sprawling arts venue, opened in 2016 by philanthropists Cathy and Peter Halstead, celebrates the union of land, art, architecture, and music, bringing concerts by world-renowned musicians and large-scale sculpture by artists like Alexander Calder, Patrick Dougherty, Mark di Suvero, Ensamble Studio, and Stephen Talasnik to a breathtaking destination. Tippet Rise is the first book on this unique arts venue; With over 200 stunning color plates, it's the next best thing to an actual visit, which should be on the to-do list of every art, architecture, and music lover.
This landmark monograph includes essays by the founders, statements by the featured artists and musician Steven Hough, and poems by Peter Halstead.
Tippet Rise Art Center co-founders Peter Halstead, a poet, photographer, and pianist, and Cathy Halstead, a painter and philanthropist, are the Trustees of the Tippet Rise Foundation and Trustees of the Sidney E. Frank Foundation.
