A Narrative History of the Montana Heritage Project

St. Ignatius High School


Students designed an historical mural for a Main Street building. Students researched local culture and history and then designed murals. As a group, the class chose one mural for implementation. Due to the possible demolition of the building, however, the mural was not finished. Instead, with the help of shop teacher Gene Posivio, students designed a sheet metal and aluminum sculpture of two buffalo. The buffalo sculpture was mounted on the industrial arts building and faces west, towards the National Bison Range, which is a short distance from St. Ignatius. The sculpture was installed on the ninetieth anniversary of the Bison Range and on the week of the Annual Bison Range Ride, a community horse riding event in the Range.
