John Banovich Art Center
After nearly 5 years in the making we have now completed our new 6500 square foot Art Center in one of the most beautiful places in North America, Paradise Valley, Montana. Located 11 miles south of Livingston, Montana and 45 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, with the Absaroka Mountains rising like a fortress behind it, the new Banovich Art Center stands tall above the valley floor. With reverence paid to the agricultural roots of the region, architectural design including cold rolled steel and wood siding give a seasoned appearance, as if it has experienced decades of the extreme Rocky Mountain elements. Inside you will be transported through art to some of the wildest places on earth. New art, new collectibles and new stories will continually emerge from behind the 10 foot doors. A place that will continue to evolve with timeless creative energy, every visit will be an unique guest experience. We will be hosting special events, public appearances and important exhibitions centered around the celebration of Wildlife and Wild Places and the important role both play in enriching our lives. Through this cultural platform we hope to imbue an understanding that art can move, reveal and inspire to seek a deeper understanding of the world around us; it can paint a face on an idea, a region, a cause and help engage us at visceral level to conserve our wildlife heritage. You are all welcome to come and visit as something WILD awaits you!
