Come see Glacier through the eyes of Charlie Russell and other artists in the exhibit “Many Storied Mountains: The Artists of Glacier National Park.” With the close of the open range and increasing settlement in the state of Montana, Glacier National Park was held in high esteem as “about as wild a place as you can find these days,” by Charles M. Russell. Established by the federal government in 1910, Glacier was only the eighth protected area to be overseen by the Department of the Interior. Featured in this exhibition are works by Charles Russell, John Fery, John Clarke, and Winold Reiss. Through the efforts of these early artists, Glacier’s iconic landscapes and wildlife were memorialized in paintings, photographs, and posters, shaping America’s public perception of the park for years to come.
