If you are a fan of art, then you will love the Yellowstone Art Trail.
The Yellowstone Art Trail is held to showcase the arts in this area while educating people on the individual artists’ unique form and style of art. Not only does it benefit the artists and those who come out to experience the art trail, but it benefits the whole community.
The name of the “Yellowstone Art Trail” was named after the transcontinental auto route that went right through these communities (currently County Highway X) from 1915-1930. It was named Yellowstone to draw tourists along it to the national park.
Visitors can meet the artists and purchase items for sale, and then enjoy a bite to eat at one of the area restaurants on the trail, or check out the local specialty shops. There are 32 artists at 10 locations. Several locations will host guest artists; Anson Methodist Church, ZCBJ Bohemian Lodge, Cadott Area Historical Society, English Lutheran Church of Bateman and Institute of St. Joseph/Nazareth Studio in Boyd. The Bohemian Lodge hall and the Cadott Historical Society will be giving tours of their buildings both days. In addition, there are five art studios on the art trail. There are also specialty shops and historical places of interest on the trail. Those who come out to the free self-guided art tour will enjoy the beautiful scenery this area has to offer, plus take in the history of the area.
Each artist will be giving away one of their creative pieces, so you can enter your name in a drawing at each location and from each artist. The art trail features artwork for all ages-men and women alike. It includes original and handmade wood crafts, metal sculptures, fine art paintings and drawings, fiber art, stain glass, jewelry and much more.
The Yellowstone Art Trail will be held on September 6th and 7th. For more information, visit their website and be sure to watch the full interview above!
