Four Wyoming Arts Council board members have been reappointed by Governor Matt Mead and confirmed by the Wyoming Senate.
Janelle Fletcher-Kilmer of Laramie, Neil Hansen of Powell, Erin Taylor of Cheyenne and Holly Turner of Casper will all return to the board and serve three year terms.
The Wyoming Arts Council is advised by a ten-member board. Those selected must be Wyoming residents “known for their competence and experience in all fields of the performing and fine arts.”
Fletcher-Kilmer is director of University of Wyoming Cultural Programs and Fine Arts Outreach. Hansen is a musician and recently retired from the music faculty of Northwest College. Taylor is the owner of Taylor Strategies & Consulting, and serves on the board of the Wyoming Lottery. Turner is director of the Casper Artists’ Guild and former director of the Nicolaysen Art Museum.
At its quarterly meeting Feb. 26-27 in Cheyenne, the board elected Fletcher-Kilmer to a second term as board chair and Hansen was tapped as vice-chair. Tara Taylor of Lyman was chosen as the at-large member of the executive committee.
