Monte Dolack is one of the most widely recognized and beloved artists in Montana. The artist marks his 70th birthday in the year 2020; simultaneously, the MMAC will celebrate its 125th anniversary.
As the inaugural exhibition of the museum’s sesquicentennial season, the show brings together many original oil paintings, sketches, lithographs, and posters, reflecting Dolack’s love of the natural world and blending his interests in storytelling and mythology with his profound sense of humor.
The artist’s keen observations of nature and his concern for environmental issues have led to commissions from dozens of conservation organizations like American Rivers, Defenders of Wildlife, the Nature Conservancy, and Trout Unlimited; and he has created over 300 posters and prints for various organizations since 1964. Dolack’s works can be found in the collections of the American Association of Museums, the Library of Congress, the National Wildfire Foundation, and many other prestigious museums and corporations.
