SoBA Happy to Give Home to “Bear, Earth, Sky”

'Bear, Earth, Sky'

This spring, Omnibar donated a work of art to the School of Business Administration (SoBA) entitled “Bear, Earth, Sky.”  It was painted for the Grizzly Prowl Project in 2005 by Janet McGahan, a third-generation Montanan in Arlee who earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Montana.  McGahan is a wildlife artist who works in oil, watercolor, and pastel.

“Bear, Earth, Sky” was donated to SoBA in memory of Cooper Burchenal, one of the founders of Omnibar.  Burchenal and his wife, Anne, hired two SoBA students right out of college to work for Omnibar.  He loved and appreciated artistic expression, Montana wildlife, and open landscapes.  

The work of art has been placed on the third floor of the Gallagher Business Building, where it is also visible from the 2nd floor piazza.
