Art v. Architecture Panel Discussion

Art v. Architecture Panel Discussion

The second of the Gallatin Art Crossing lecture series will take place Wednesday, December 9th at 7pm in the Bozeman Public Library. This interactive discussion will bring together several members of the architecture and art communities to talk about “Art v. Architecture.”

Panelists will discuss questions such as: Which is more important, art or architecture? How do you put a value on your work? Do you work for the market or for yourself? At what point does architecture become art and vise versa?

Join us to hear from these experts:

  • EJ Engler, local sculptor with a background in architecture
  • John Montoya, architect and owner of Ensitio Design
  • Vaughan Judge, director of the School of Art at MSU
  • Ken VanDeWalle, local architect and designer of several GVLT bridges
  • Brett Potter, architect and owner of Focus Architects
  • Richard Parrish, owner and designer for Fusio Studio

Gallatin Art Crossing’s mission is to promote and place public art, enhancing the cultural landscape in downtown Bozeman. Currently, there are 70 pieces on display from the Emerson Cultural Center to the Bozeman Public Library. Each year, pieces are rotated with the goal of purchasing at least one piece for the permanent collection.

The 2016 Call for Artists is now open. Please download the application form if you are interested in submitting a piece for consideration for the 2016 season. The submission deadline is July 2016.

The lecture series is presented by the Gallatin Art Crossing and hosted by the Bozeman Public Library. For more information contact Tate Chamberlin at or Paula Beswick at
