Where are we going today?

This Center for the Arts opened in 1977 in the 1910 WaterWorks basins that previously produced Miles City's drinking water for over 60 years. It's located just west of Miles City, Montana on the banks of the Yellowstone River in an area that was part of the 1876 Fort Keogh Reservation. Previously, it was a common camping ground site used for centuries by the first Americans. Large galleries feature regional and national changing exhibits as well as those drawn from our permanent collection. Selected artists represent a wide variety of mediums and styles in solo, group and theme exhibitions. Also view the "Home of LA Huffman" featuring our vast collection of vintage photographs by frontier photographer LA Huffman as well as other notable photographers of the late 1800's including: Christian Barthelmess, Lady Evelyn Cameron, Robert C Morrison, Albert Schlichting and Edward S Curtis. Guided by a philosophy of public service in the arts and cultural interests, this non-profit center produces a year-round calendar of changing exhibits, workshops, classes and humanities programs.
