A Narrative History of the Montana Heritage Project

Art of the Westward Movement

Tony Gies

Roundup High School


Art students at Roundup High School studied the art and imagery of landscapes created during America’s westward movement, and they illustrated stories of selected immigrants with pen and ink drawings. Other students completed an oral history project of World War II veterans, to accompany black and white photographic portraits of each interview subject. Advanced art students created a video in conjunction with the media arts class documenting the architecture and history of local landmarks, the “twin houses.” One student created a tryptich depicting the life of early forest service legend Ray Greathouse.
