Deadline for the Wyoming Arts Council’s 2014-2015 artist roster is Dec. 1.

Artists and arts groups in the literary, performing and visual arts can apply online via the CaFÉ (Call for Entry) program of the Western States Arts Federation. Folk artists may apply in any of these categories.

Wyoming residents can register at CaFÉ for free at http://www.callforentry.org. Once registered, look up the call name of “Wyoming Arts Council Artist Roster 2014” to begin the process.

The WAC roster seeks to value artistic excellence through the selected artists, and to engage the public as patrons and advocates for the arts. Roster artists not only represent artistic excellence, but also become ambassadors for the WAC, and are a form of dynamic public art. Organizations, schools and festival presenters can write Artists Across Wyoming grants to bring these artists to their communities.

A roster directory is printed annually, distributed statewide, and posted online on the WAC web page at https://wyoarts.state.wy.us/directories/wac-artist-roster/

For more information, contact Karen Merklin at the WAC, Karen.Merklin@wyo.gov or 307-777-7743.
