The Historic Exhibition Hall

The Bigfork Art & Cultural Center has become the Bigfork Museum of Art & History. After 30 years of being  a premier Art Center  the board of directors decided to get back to the roots of the organization and resurrect the Historical Museum that was once part of the Center. The Museum will retain its focus of showcasing the many talented artists of Montana as well as preserving the unique history of Bigfork and the surrounding area. With a new mission statement:

The Bigfork Museum of Art & History is dedicated to bringing an awareness and appreciation of the visual arts in Montana and the history of the Bigfork region.  The museum seeks to inspire the visitor and community members through exhibitions, programs and collections in arts, sciences and the humanities. To offer these services and expand them as the needs and desires of the community dictate.

With this new focus the board and staff  will be working with the community to expand our local history display as well as work with the natural history. The museum will also continue to bring quality art exhibitions to Bigfork from member shows to themed juried shows and highlighting the talented artists who have made Bigfork their home.  The upper level of the Museum will be repurposed to house the new historical museum space.  If you would like to help with this endeavor please contact us today!


Current Exhibitions Organic In the dictionary organic is defined as developing naturally: occurring or developing gradually and naturally, without being forced or contrived. Organic is the perfect word for the four artists who will show their work in glass and fiber from July 12 to August 10 at the Bigfork Museum of Art & History.

Lee Proctor is a resident of Bigfork Montana. Lee is an expert glass blower and loves experimenting with cast glass as well. He states, "I have always treasured the mystery, the unspoken, unexplainable aspect involved in creating Art." A graduate of the Pilchuck Glass School, Lee has years of working in both glass and metal.

Florence O?????Neil, from Kalispell, is a watercolorist and art quilter whose color sensibilities and technique are beyond compare. Sally Glutting is from Kalispell, and after retiring from teaching, is expressing herself in quilts with shapes and subject matter taken from nature. Ann Brown, from Kila, rounds out the group of artists in her exploration of design as a pure aesthetic. A reception will be held Friday July 12 from 5-7 pm.
