Bozeman Artist Ben Pease Sells Limited Edition Prints for First Crow Agency Purchase
Bozeman artist and Crow Tribal member Ben Pease is selling a limited edition print run of his mixed media painting Sits in the Middle of the Land with a portion of the proceeds going toward the purchase of the historical site of Fort Parker, the First Crow Indian Agency.
The Extreme History Project, a local independent, public history non-profit organization, has partnered with the Archaeological Conservancy to purchase the site of Fort Parker in order to preserve and honor this history. The Archaeological Conservancy is a national non-profit organization that purchases archaeological sites in order to protect and preserve their cultural resources.
The Extreme History Project has arranged for 20 high quality prints of Pease’s painting to be signed and numbered by the artist and sold to the public. There are ten prints at 18” x 24” which will sell for $250 each and ten prints at 24” x 36” which will sell for $400 each. Ben Pease will donate a substantial portion of the proceeds of each print to the Archaeological Conservancy to be used towards the purchase of the site.
The Four Winds Gallery at the Emerson Center for Arts and Culture in Bozeman will host an exclusive show of Ben’s work along with a print signing on Friday, September 12 from 5 – 8 pm, during the Bozeman Art Walk. The prints will be available for sale at the Four Winds Gallery and through The Extreme History Project Website.
