Testimonials

  • "As a scientist, I appreciate how art can make science more "approachable" to people not trained in a science discipline but also see how an artist can interpret a scientific issue bring new perspectives to the scientist."
    Upstream, Wetlands Attendee
  • "Wonderful celebrations of water and deeper looks into the importance and fragility of our relationship with it."
    Wetlands, Gabriel Canal Attendee
  • "Refreshing venues. Many pungent memories because of the unexpected locations."
    WaterWorks Attendee
  • “I rode my bike with my brother along the old railroad bed, I was moved by the power of the site and FLOW gave a 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. 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
  • “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.”
