Welcome to the Emerson! Built in 1918 as an elementary school, today the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture is a thriving arts and community center. As southwest Montana's focal point for artistic and cultural activities, the historic Emerson fosters creative exchanges and celebrations for people of all ages, and from all walks of life. The Emerson is a community hub - a place for people to gather and create, work, and learn - be inspired, challenged and entertained.

On any given day, our historic building is overflowing with activities and creativity - painters capturing emotion on canvas, percussionists drumming an African beat, limber dancers practicing positions, violinists rehearsing for upcoming recitals, children singing in French, writers' groups critiquing narratives, community groups brainstorming at a regional artists of all media. Our Jesse Wilbur Gallery is the only professional contemporary arts gallery in Bozeman. In short, there's something for everyone at the Emerson!

The Emerson hosts many free community events each year, such as:

Lunch on the Lawn - Music and food outside on the lawn every Wednesday in July and August

Annual Garden Tour - Self-guided tour of some of Gallatin Valley's most beautiful and unique gardens, large and small. (Nominal fee event).All Hallow's Eve Family Open House - Trick or treating for children of all ages in a warm, creative and safe environment
