A rare opportunity is happening at the Ravalli County Museum, starting Saturday evening – “Thomas Cole” Wild Land and the Birth of the American Landscape.”

The national touring exhibit has been set up in the past couple of weeks in the old District Courtroom of the Hamilton museum at South 3rd and Bedford and the grand opening will be at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the exhibit will be open until August 11th. The display takes visitors through the process of creating the art that defined a landscape painting style in the 19th century.

Director Tamar Stanley noted the interactive ways the display connects with the public, including actual items used by artists of the time, and of course, an electronic touch screen station.

The first thing you notice as you enter the display are the large banner graphics that lead you through the room and back into the 1820s.
