with Hipolito Rafael Chacón
professor of art history and criticism at The University of Montana
A.J. Gibson was one of Montana’s best known architects. A pioneer from the 1880s to 1910s, he defined great architecture in western Montana and literally reshaped the rough and tumble western town into a modern civilized space. The self-taught Gibson was also an early automobile enthusiast and his record-setting journeys were legendary. Chacón presents Gibson’s achievements in a 40-minute illustrated presentation followed by discussion.
