Jim Dolan

Jim Dolan

Jim Dolan is a metal sculpture artist from Montana with a career spanning more than four decades.  He was raised in California, but he attended Montana State University and spent his career in that state.

Jim’s career as a full-time artist took off after he  finished a commission in 1979 to place a flock of geese inside the terminal of Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. His portfolio includes over 170 large-scale public pieces world-wide and hundreds of private pieces.  Jim’s style of welding steel and other metals into realistic representations is unique among sculptors.  His sculptures range from table-top size to a golden eagle with a 36-foot wingspan, installed in Osaka, Japan.  His largest installation, a herd of 39 blue horses, is located near Three Forks, Montana.  Aside from large sculpture, he creates three-dimensional, heat-endured metal paintings as well as architectural design elements.  His work often contains whimsical elements, such as a Frisbee-throwing statue of Albert Einstein or one of the Blue Horses, which is “pooping” – evidenced by a small pile of round stones placed on the ground beneath the animal’s raised tail.

Jim lives near Bozeman, MT, and he welcomes visitors to his studio frequently.  He has three grown children.
