The historic Lewistown Art Center, located in Lewistown, Montana, was formed 45 years ago when the Lehman Bunkhouse was joined to the Von Tobel Carriage House on the corner of 8th Avenue and Broadway, across from the Fergus County Court House. In 2009, the Art Center was relocated and can now be found on the corner of Main Street and 4th Avenue.
The Art Center is a hub of activity Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and Saturday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
