The Russell is a fine art exhibition and four-day fundraising event. The Russell events include an educational component for the public through supporting activities and materials. This exhibition and sale offers the opportunity for thousands of individuals (including students) to view quality art created by a large and varied group of nationally known artists. It enables the Russell Museum to become a more financially stable institution better able to carry out its mission. Western Art Week has been taking place in Great Falls, Montana, since 1969. This is the fifth year that the C.M. Russell Museum will host an event to solely benefit the Museum.
