Programs & Events

 

In conjunction with our special exhibition, the fifth annual Briscoe Summer Film Series is inspired by Andy Warhol’s Cowboys & Indians suite, which portrays historical and mythic icons of the American West. The series was curated by Andrew Patrick Nelson, Assistant Professor of Film History and Critical Studies at Montana State University. He will introduce each film and discuss connections between it and selected prints from the Warhol exhibition. Join us for a great flick, food-truck fare, and free popcorn and free beer courtesy of Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling!  Lecture begins at 6:00pm followed immediately by the film.

$5 suggested donation. Free museum admission from 4:00 to 9:00pm every Tuesday.
