WaterWorks Summer 2017
Join us this summer to celebrate water and its connection to history, culture, and agriculture in the Gallatin Valley.
Mountain Time Arts is assembling knowledge about the Gallatin Watershed’s hydrologic systems through conversations with farmers, irrigators, historians, Native people, naturalists, local leaders and many others who rely on the region’s water. The result will be outdoor public art installations and performances this summer that follow water as it flows from the mountains through the City of Bozeman and on to the wetlands and ranches of the Gallatin Watershed.
We’re inspiring new strategies for working together, despite the challenges posed by population growth and drought. Events are free and open to all.
