Atlas Obscura A Sculpture Park in the Montana Wilderness

Montana’s Blackfoot Valley is known for its natural beauty, its mining and logging industries, and its excellent fly-fishing, as depicted in A River Runs Through It. The region is not, however, usually considered a destination for contemporary art.

Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild, a sculpture park set in a wooded area just off Montana State Route 200 in the small town of Lincoln, hopes to change this. It’s a first step in making the Blackfoot Valley known for its cultural, rather than just industrial, products.
