Jim Dolan's Art Studio

(Look for an Orangutan on a motorcycle!)
During the past 40 years, Jim has created over 170 large-scale public pieces world-wide, as well as hundreds of private pieces. Jim's pieces range from table-top size to a golden eagle with a 36-foot wingspan, installed in Osaka, Japan. Jim’s style of welding steel and other metals into both stylistic and realistic representations is unique among sculptors. He is particularly well-known for his western wildlife, the realism of which has been evidenced by live wildlife mistaking Jim’s sculptures for part of the herd! Many of his pieces are icons of Gallatin County, including the “Flight of Geese” which greets arriving travelers at the Bozeman airport, “Rusty”, the chain-link draft horse at the Museum of the Rockies, and one of his more popular sculptures is the Bleu Horses in Three Forks. He is currently working on a piece that rivals the magnitude of the Bleu Horses herd!
