These artists hail from Montana and beyond and their works transformed the abandoned Tinworks warehouse into a vibrant, at times unrecognizable space in the summer of 2019.
719 N. Ida Ave, Bozeman, MT (map)
Tinworks art was open from Friday, July 12 – Saturday, August 17, 2019.
We thank everyone who attended for their support and enthusiasm.
We believe that art has the power to infuse new life into spaces and communities, while simultaneously embracing what came before. In the summer of 2019, Tinworks Art creatively utilized an abandoned industrial site in Bozeman, MT, with its raw, unconventional interior and exterior spaces, to create a dynamic experience that inspired gathering, dialogue and connectivity.
Tinworks Art is a project by Story Mill Art, a Bozeman-based 501c3, that seeks to realize contemporary art installations in non-traditional spaces, and in doing so create dynamic, engaging experiences that encourage visitors to challenge their assumptions and rethink what is possible.

NENA | Friday, August 9 & Saturday, August 10
A community gathering centered on images taken by neighbors expressing what they love about the neighborhood, accompanied by a few sentences of text that give voice to the image.
BENTLY SPANG | Saturday, AUGUST 17 @ 8:30PM
On the soon to be demolished Tinworks warehouse, Bently Spang presented a new performance work, flipping the persistent myth of ‘The West’ on its ear by revealing the even more persistent layer of Native existence that never left this place. Accompanied by a soundscape work created by his son Troy Spang, an accomplished musician, he created a contemporary cairn of sorts, a marker, to reset the understanding of this place on the earth as it moves into the next stage and remind the viewer of the true complexity of place.
Tinworks Art would like to thank the following generous sponsors for their support of this event and commitment to bringing great art and cultural opportunities to Bozeman. Tinworks Art would not have been possible without their support.
