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.
