Butte Art Foundation Finds a New Home

BUTTE -

The Butte-Silver Bow Arts Foundation will now have a new home.

The foundation will now be located in the Venus Espresso House.

For years, the coffee shop that was planning on closing its doors financed the art foundation in the historic Art Chateau.

Last week, the foundation was removed from the Chateau Building after the county ended its decades long lease.

Now, a generous donation of $1,200 from a Seattle-area man will allow the Venus House to stay open, and become the new home of the art foundation.

"We're at a better place and in a better frame of mind because we know we're not done," said Gretchen Miller, executive director of the Butte-Silver Bow Art Foundation. "We still get to continue what we've been doing for 36 years."

Miller says the donator, Marcus Croman, will now move to Butte with his wife and help run the coffee shop.

They plan to be in Butte by next week.
