Secretary of State Linda McCulloch Announces New “Treasured” Montana Artist
HELENA, MT- Secretary of State Linda McCulloch today announced photographer Hunter Day, of Missoula, as the next “Treasured” Montana Artist. McCulloch selected Day from a competitive field of candidates for his ability to capture the backcountry of Montana.
“Hunter Day is an exceptional Montana talent,” said Secretary McCulloch. “I was so impressed with his work that we used it on our Election Night Reporting website.”
Day was raised in Helena and found an appreciation for nature and wilderness at a young age. He enjoyed a typical upbringing of fishing and hunting, which developed a love for Montana. Over the past two years his drive to capture and be part of special moments in nature has pushed him to explore the wilderness and backcountry of Montana, and beyond.
“I hope my images inspire people to wake up early and catch that sunrise,” Day said. “To start a campfire with some friends as the sun goes down, and stay out late and lay under the shining stars that our beautiful state has to offer.”
Secretary McCulloch’s “Treasured” Artist distinction culminated with a reception on Wednesday. Hunter Day’s photography will be exhibited in the lobby of the Office of the Secretary of State.
