POSTPONED – BARBARA’S PROGRAM IS RESCHEDULED TO MAY OR JUNE: The Western Heritage Center, based on recommendations from the Yellowstone County Unified Health Command, will be temporarily closed beginning Saturday, March 14. The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, staff, and neighbors is our top priority.
Barbara Van Cleve presents the program, A Montanan Through and Through: The Photographic Legacy of Barbara Van Cleve. Deemed a “Treasured Montana Artist,” acclaimed photographer Barbara Van Cleve has documented western ranch life from the mid-twentieth century continuing through today. Van Cleve relates her life story in photography from the beginning on her family’s ranch, the Lazy K Bar, which was situated on the slopes of the Crazy Mountains. She traces her photographic journey through its transformation from an avocation into a vocation, her efforts setting up projects whose stories had to be told photographically, and the time spent sharing her vast knowledge with teenagers and adults.
