The Copper Village Museum and Arts Center, was founded in 1971, in the hopes that the arts could help to heal the divisions of a 9 month strike between the Anaconda Company and it's workers. With strong support from it's community, the center has flourished ever since. As a not-for-profit organization the Center provides many programs and services. In 1985, the Copper Village Board and Tri-County Historical Society undertook the preservation project to save and renovate Anaconda's abandoned City Hall. This is where the Museum and Art Center is now located. Our location is the corner of Commercial and Cedar Streets.Exhibits in the Engine House Gallery feature local and traditional arts. Contemporary artists from Montana as well as national exhibits are displayed. The gallery hosts 5 to 6 different exhibits during the year. Two of these exhibits feature the art work of the local schools, a primary section and a middle school /high school section. One special exhibit each year features local quilts.
