In order to honor many of the iconic historic buildings in Philipsburg, the Arts Fund commissioned local artist Ben Larson to create a series of pen and ink sketches. The finished pieces will be printed as postcards and posters as a fund raiser for Philipsburg Arts Fund projects.

Ben Larson lives and works in Philipsburg. His creativity spans a wide variety of mediums; architectural design, pen & ink illustration, bluegrass music and landscape photography among many others. He spends his days fixing up old buildings and promoting historic preservation in Western Montana.
