Testimonials

  • “I rode my bike with my brother along the old railroad bed, not knowing what we were in for. was moved by the power of the site and FLOW gave strong sense of what the valley was like, how it’s been transformed and what we can learn while not pushing an outcome.”
    Alan
  • “The message of FLOW is powerful, important, and haunting. With water as a backdrop, the history of our adopted (stolen) region is remembered in solemn beauty. We are drawn to make our own conclusions and to feel the impact of our lives on the land and others.”
    Nonnie
  • “I loved how the artist worked so collaboratively with Mother Nature. The wind was blowing, lightning in the distance... rain after the performance ended… couldn’t have been better. Thanks for producing this.”
    Marilyn
  • “This was one of the neatest things to happen in Bozeman this year! It was sepecial because of the lack of hype and glitz. Down to earth, the way Bozeman used to be before the world discovered us.”
