public art

The Laramie Mural Project will celebrate its tenth public artwork with an outdoor party on Friday, June 13. The Mural Project is collaboration between artists, the University of Wyoming Art Museum and the Laramie Main Street Alliance. Since 2011, it has decorated the sides of downtown buildings with images ranging from migrant farm workers to prairie dogs. 

A new public art project will be coming to Casper this summer. It will resemble a giant sun dial and will incorporate depictions of Wyoming’s landscape and history.

The piece will be situated outside of an affordable housing complex, across the street from the Nicolaysen Art Museum.

Curator Lisa Hatchadoorian says she hopes this work will become a gathering place for residents from all over town.

“It adds so much to the community experience to have different types of art out there … interacting with weather and nature and life,” Hatchedoorian said.
