Everyone in the Laramie community is invited to attend and participate in public discussions about public art.

Laramie’s Community Wide Public Art Plan will guide how future public art in Laramie will be developed and implemented. The Art Plan cannot be created without research, community participation and community involvement. This provides an opportunity for the community to get involved and help make the Art Plan a vision for the future.

The first of the two discussions will take place on Wednesday, February 25 at the Laramie Junior High School Cafeteria from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

The next discussion will take place on Saturday, February 28 at the Lincoln Community Center from 11 a.m.-1 a.m.

Renee Piechocki and Jennifer McGregor, the consultants who are organizing and preparing the Art Plan, will be hosting the two discussions about public art.  The consultants will be showing examples of public art projects and discussing places in Laramie that would be possible locations for public art.

Families are welcome to attend the discussion, and RSVPs are not necessary. Art supplies will be available for children to create their own art projects during the discussions.

The Art Plan is a cooperative partnership effort between the City of Laramie, Laramie Main Street Alliance, Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, Laramie Beautification Committee, and the University of Wyoming Art Museum.  Funding sources for the completion of the Community Wide Public Art Plan are from the above partner organizations along with grants from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund and the Wyoming Arts Council through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
