Artist Talk with Ben Pease at the YAM

Thursday, March 14th from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm

401 North 27th St., Billings, MT, 59101

Join us on Thursday, March 14 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm for a FREE Artist Talk with Billings-based contemporary artist Ben Pease. This event is hosted in partnership with the Yellowstone Art Museum, and will be held at the museum’s downtown Billings location (401 N. 27th Street).

A casual reception with a cash bar and desserts by Tipi Creek Catering will begin at 5:00 PM; the Artist Talk begins at 5:30 PM.

Pease will discuss the creation and meaning of his sculpture, Future in Our Eyes, and address broader themes of the visual arts as a means for transmitting culture and the cross-cultural exchange of ideas. This talk is the latest installment in our ongoing speaker series, Lessons from Indigenous Organizing.

The Lessons from Indigenous Organizing series is part of Northern Plains’ ongoing efforts around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The Northern Plains membership and leadership have expressed a clear commitment to deepening our understanding of the land we walk on, the history we inherit, and the Native communities working alongside us for a better world.

Born in Missoula, Pease is enrolled with the Northern Cheyenne Tribe. He is a member of the Crow Indian Reservation’s Valley of the Chiefs District and grew up in Lodge Grass. He belongs to the Newly Made Lodge Clan and is a child of Newly Made Lodge.

Pease has exhibited his work worldwide in Germany, Brazil, Italy, Canada, and the United Arab Emirates. In addition, his work has been widely recognized in various magazines, books, online publications, social media platforms, and news affiliates. In 2022 Pease was awarded the Executive Editor’s Choice Award from the Western Art Collector Magazine in conjunction with the C.M. Russell Museum.

“We’re honored to host Ben Pease, a nationally celebrated artist who uses his work and talent to educate and deepen understanding of his community,” said Northern Plains chair, Edward Barta, who is also a docent at the Yellowstone Art Museum.
