Confirmating the fears of many, the woman killed in the Main Street blast has been identified as Tara Bowman, Director of the Montana Trails Gallery. It was a tragedy in any case, but now we know it is also a tragedy for the Bozeman arts community. The Bozeman Daily Chronicle has a fine article here.
A memorial fund has been established to contribute to the Bozeman Help Center and Crisis Center, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and other charities (depending upon the amount of funds received) in Tara’s honor. To donate, write a check (payable to “Tara Reistad Bowman Memorial Endowment Fund” and deliver it to any First Security Bank location.
