Men no longer invoke the love of poetry. And yet never before has there been such a need for men to be transfigured, to be rescued, to be comforted by poetry. - Wallace Stevens
Music and architecture are simply poetry by other means.
Tippet Rise opens in June of 2016.
Transformative connections between music, art, and nature, set on an 11,500-acre working ranch in the shadow of the Beartooth mountains, just north of Yellowstone in Fishtail, Montana.
Tippet Rise is anchored in the belief that art, music, architecture and nature are inextricably linked in the human experience. Each makes the others more powerful. One of the missions of the art center is to connect visitors with classical music and outdoor artwork in a more personal way.
Tippet Rise will feature several intimate musical performance venues whose size, shape and acoustics are inspired by many of history’s most influential music spaces. Our music program seeks to create memorable experiences for performers and audience members alike.
Hidden in the rolling hills of Tippet Rise are a number of large-scale sculptures and other works by some of the world’s foremost artists and architects. Many are site-specific compositions, whose goal is to erase the traditional boundaries between art, nature and architecture.
Additional facilities include housing for artists-in-residence and spaces for teaching, practicing, and recording. Artists in residence will we hope respond to the unique terrain and the big sky in what they create.
