Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: C.M. Russell Museum
The Historic Artist Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip is BACK in 2022! Join us to explore the unique creative spaces and art-making practices of six American artists. Fueled by the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho, and the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums, homes, and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of artworks.

Traveling from Joshua Tree, California to Great Falls, Montana, as the last stop on this six-part virtual road trip, we’ll investigate the creative spaces of painter C.M. Russell. Immersing ourselves in Russell’s fully restored log home and studio, we’ll learn how the original “cowboy artist” captured a prolific visual record of the American West. We’ll also explore how the site today not only shares Russell’s legacy as an artist but as a devoted husband and friend, offering an intimate view into his life.

This free, one-hour event will take place via ZOOM on September 14, 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT. One registration is needed per household. Live American Sign Language (ASL) will be provided.

While C.M. Russell’s works appear in collections throughout the United States, the C.M. Russell Museum offers visitors a unique opportunity to connect with Charlie as an artist, husband, and friend. The museum includes not just interpretive exhibits and art galleries, but Russell’s studio, the gallery addition to the studio, and the house he and his wife, Nancy, built. In 2019, the Russell House and Studio re-opened with new, interactive components that provide a unique opportunity for visitors to commune with Charlie the artist and gain a deeper understanding of Charlie and Nancy’s marriage and partnership.
