Missouri Valley Marketing has commissioned muralist Sophie Mathis to paint 3 murals on buildings in downtown Townsend. The owners of the buildings: Jeannie Steele (the Reading Leaves building), Jake Balliew (Lakeside Distillery building) and Alana Prevel (the Mint) have graciously allowed us to place murals designed by Sophie on their buildings.
Sophie is well known in Townsend. Her grandmother is Townsend resident Bonnie Mathis and her grandfather helped build The Lodge of Townsend building.
Last summer Sophie created the mural on the City of Townsend maintenance building adjacent to the The Lodge of Townsend. Sophie has done many murals including one on the Mathis Grocery in White Sulphur Springs and has a mural in the Bozeman Airport.
Please come downtown and watch Sophie’s murals come to life! Sophie is also accepting donations. If you appreciate Sophie’s murals and how much they will add to our downtown area please make a contribution in the “contribution bucket” on site.
A generous grant from the Broadwater Community Foundation has helped make this project possible. MVM thanks BCF for their support for this project and all of the other projects they support in Broadwater County.
