Established in 1982, the Governor’s Arts Awards recognizes artists, arts organizations and patrons who have displayed excellence in the arts and outstanding service to the arts in Wyoming. These awards were first made possible by an endowment from the Union Pacific Foundation in honor of Mrs. John U. Loomis, a life-long patron of the arts. Over the years, more than 100 individuals, patrons and organizations from over half of Wyoming’s counties have been honored for their dedication to the arts in Wyoming.
