Great way to meet local artists

We toured the place top to bottom and met many artists working in their studios. Great diversity in products and galleries! If you like art, its a must do for Bozeman.

The Emerson is a fun place to go to look at art or even for a concert. We always find something new when we go there.

This is a wonderful venue for art shows, shops, and working studios. It's well worth the time to visit for any art lover. It was especially fun watching a number of artists at work. We hope to visit again.
