March/April, 2014

"Within/Without" Exhibition at the Clay Center

Ceramic Artist, Educator, and Administrator Tammy Marinuzzi is our Featured Artist for the March/April Exhibit. She has been collecting secrets from around the country for over a year, selecting private confessions from myriad minds. Her jars parallel her concept. We perceive them based on their exteriors and can only know what lies within once we choose to invest in them. In the same way we invest in those within our private circles. The layers and depths of a person only come to be known in this way. Inside of each one of Marinuzzi's jars she will place a collected secret. Do you want to know what it is?

The Grizzly Peak Turn Pedal and Burn

Formally known as the Grizzly Peak Adventure Race, this event is in it's 4th year running. Expect the same carnival atmosphere, with good times, great people, from the past years with a few tweeks to the course.

The three part drag race into Red Lodge, Montana from the top of Red Lodge Mountain is one great way to kick off the spring race season. No training, no crazy diet, no expensive race equipment. All you'll need is the want to rip it, grip it and hold on tight for the run to the finish. The race kicks off with a 1.3 miles of fast turn downhill ski turns as you rip down Lazy M to the base area of Red Lodge Mountain. Click out of your boards and into your pedals and crank for town. It's 9 miles of twisting gavel roads, leg screaming pavement and the one and only hill on the course, but before you'll know it you be at the Carbon County Fairgrounds and ready to embark on your final leg. This is the burn, a 2.25 mile run around the Red Lodge Airport on the Rocky Fork Trail. Once you've made it back to the finish line at the Fairgrounds you can kick up your feet, enjoy a free beverage and know that you got the first race of the season out of the way, no sweat! Red Lodge Ales will be at the finish line serving up tasty cold beverages, and the first one is on us.

Fossil Hunter: Ferdinand Hayden and the Rise of Paleontology in Montana

Montana Historical Society Community Preservation Coordinator Kate Hampton will present Fossil Hunter: Ferdinand Hayden and the Rise of Paleontology in Montana. During the 1850s, the study of prehistoric life was in its infancy. Darwin’s theories on evolution had yet to be published, and the term “dinosaur” had been coined just the decade before. Building on centuries of old ideas, a new generation of observers—geologists, naturalists, biologists—began to revolutionize the scientific community. One such scientist, Ferdinand Hayden, explored the American West with hopes of answering questions about the continent’s physical development. On a trip to the Missouri Breaks in 1855, Hayden made a remarkable discovery: the first identified dinosaur fossils in the Western Hemisphere. His work initiated a stampede of bone hunters to the western states—including Montana, where the “fossil boom” continues to this day.
