Relighting History

January 10th, 2013

Time: 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Location: The Baxter
The Baxter invites you to attend “Relighting History.” Join the celebration as Senator Max Baucus, the Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Bozeman Partnership, and The Baxter relight the historic “Hotel Baxter” sign. The restoration project of the 45-foot-wide, metal neon sign, erected in 1929 is finally complete. The long extinguished glow remembered by few, and now excitedly anticipated by many, will return to its former glory on Bozeman’s tallest building. The collaboration of David Loseff and Lauren Marvel of The Baxter, Ole Nelson of Media Station Design Works, Rob Pertzborn of Intrinsik Architecture, and Darren Dust of Treasure State Signs, fashioned the sign to shine once again after what has been estimated, at least 40 years.

The celebration on Thursday, January 10th at 5:30pm is FREE and open to the public
