Tippet Rise founders interviewed on Yellowstone Public Radio

Tippet Rise founders interviewed on Yellowstone Public Radio

Via a delightful new program that airs every other Monday on Yellowstone Public Radio, two veterans of the Montana arts and culture scene interview artists and others who are creating and influencing art throughout the region. Recently, the show’s hosts, Corby Skinner and Anna Paige, spoke with Cathy and Peter Halstead, the founders of Tippet Rise. During the 30-minute radio spot, the Halsteads and their hosts discussed a myriad of fascinating topics, including the Halsteads’ love for Montana and the many places, people and works of art that inspired the making of Tippet Rise. The show aired on YPR on Monday, the 24th of July. To listen to that episode of Resounds: Arts and Culture on the High Plains, visit the link below.

Concert for kids draws enthusiastic crowd

Concert for kids draws enthusiastic crowd

On Sunday, July 16, Tippet Rise presented a free concert for families featuring the Bozeman ensemble, 406 Woodwind Quintet. The event opened with a musical “petting zoo,” allowing children from the audience to explore and play a variety of woodwind instruments, and included short, lively dances by Denes Agay, Louis Andriessen and Maurice Ravel. Throughout the performance, children joined the musicians on stage and danced and pirouetted in the aisles. Members of the quintet are Beth Antonopolous, Sue Makeever, Greg Notess, Susan Wadsworth, and Greg Young, all faculty members at MSU Bozeman’s School of Music. The concert drew more than 100 people from throughout the region and much farther afield. Thank you to the 406 Woodwind Quintet for bringing such joy to our audience of young classical music lovers!

Additional works by artist Stephen Talasnik come to the art center

Tippet Rise recently acquired two additional works by artist Stephen Talasnik, the creator of Satellite #5: Pioneer, the yellow cedar and steel sculpture that is among the center’s collection of land art. Galaxy (2014) and Archaeology (2012) are small-scale structures made of wood that evoke the aesthetics of architectural models. Both structures have been mounted inside the Olivier Music Barn’s performance space, flanking the stage area. We’re pleased and honored to add them to our collection.
