April 17, 2024 @ 7:00pm - 9:30pm

Tinworks Art: In Conversation brings together artists, writers, scientists, and creative thinkers from various fields to discuss the topics of our time. Monthly from March through June, Tinworks will convene thought leaders from the region and beyond for a pilot series On Food and Farming.

The conversations have been developed in consideration of artist Agnes Denes’ new work, Wheatfield—An Inspiration. The seed is in the ground, presented at Tinworks for the 2024 exhibition season, and in collaboration with Mary Stein, a community leader in sustainable food systems endeavors and recently retired program leader of the Sustainable Food and Bioenergy Systems degree program at Montana State University.

Tinworks Art: In Conversation are ticketed evening events, open to the public, hosted by The Rialto Theater in downtown Bozeman.
