Of the many large-scale sculpture and art parks in the world, including Marfa, Storm King, Tickon, Yorkshire, Ekebergparken, Hakone, and Foundation Maeght, none is more ambitious in vision, nor in a more spectacular setting, than Tippet Rise, a 10,260-acre arts venue in south-central Montana. Nestled in the mountains north of Yellowstone National Park, the sprawling arts venue, opened in 2016 by philanthropists Peter and Cathy Halstead, celebrates the union of land, art, architecture, and music, bringing concerts by world-renowned musicians and large-scale sculpture by artists like Alexander Calder, Patrick Dougherty, Mark di Suvero, Ensamble Studio, and Stephen Talasnik to a breathtaking destination. Tippet Rise Art Center is the first book on this unique arts venue: with over two hundred stunning color plates, itís the next best thing to an actual visit, which should be on the to-do list of every art, architecture, and music lover.
This landmark monograph includes essays by the founders, statements by the featured artists, and poems by Peter Halstead.
