Art Organizations

Livingston Montana Art and CultureFolks say Livingston has more artists per capita than most big cities. Three non-profit arts groups are at the heart of this vibrant arts community: The Danforth Gallery, Livingston Center for Art and Culture, and The Shane Lalani Center for the Arts.

The Danforth Gallery

Established in 1974 as a community non-profit, the Park County Friends of the Arts (PCFA) and the Danforth Gallery have played an active role for over 40 years in establishing Livingston as an art center of Montana. The Danforth provides opportunities for aspiring and working artists to exhibit their work. The member-based organization also offers arts outreach and educational programming to the community.

We provide a location for classes, a meeting and gathering venue for educational interchange, as well as an exhibition gallery for artists’ and students’ work.”
