Renowned London artist Peregrine Heathcote is bringing elements of the Mining City and Montana alive with vibrant colors in the heart of Uptown Butte.
The Hotel Finlen has been a symbol of elegance and tradition for decades, so owners JJ and Shanna Adams commissioned Heathcote to “add a new layer of charm” to the landmark and to celebrate the rich history and culture of Butte.
Heathcote’s paintings have been exhibited at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal Academy and are collected and displayed all over the world. The BBC recently filmed a documentary on his work.
“I’ve been an admirer of his work for many years and it’s surreal to have him here painting a mural for our community,” said Finlen Owner and General Manager JJ Adams. “His work evokes many of the themes we strive for at the Hotel Finlen — timelessness, intrigue, quality, glamour and travel.”
