The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, August 8, with a presentation by The Root and The Bloom Collective’s summer interns. All students from Butte High, the interns recently returned from a trip to New York City, where they conducted research for their personal projects to be presented at the Clark Chateau during the August Art Walk. The students worked in a range of mediums from poetry, costume design, painting, and sculpture.
The students were chaperoned and guided in the projects by Christine Martin and Colin Cote. The Root and The Bloom Collective is a humanities organization committed to bringing educational and humanities programming to Butte and beyond. The group was formed in response to a call for proposals to revitalize the Historic Clark Chateau, which has been operated by the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives since 2014. The Root & The Bloom coordinates lectures, internships, youth programs, exhibits, workshops and other activities at the Chateau for the benefit of the Butte-Silver Bow and greater Southwest Montana community.
The presentation will begin at noon and run about an hour at the Archives, 17 W. Quartz. Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.
Brown Bag Lunches are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month. Upcoming lectures will focus on topics of local interest. For more information, contact the Archives at 782-3280.
