The works of 60 Wyoming artists are featured in the 2017 Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition and Sale on display at the Wyoming State Museum January 7 through March 4. Approximately 70 pieces will be on display.
The Purchase Award Reception is scheduled for Thursday, February 9, from 5 – 7 p.m. Artworks included in the show will be available for purchase by the public.
The Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition forms a collection of original Wyoming regional art for display in state offices. Works receiving Purchase Awards join this growing collection of prestigious art. The state’s five elected officials and representatives from other state agencies participating in the program select the Purchase Award winners.
This year’s selections can be viewed online here, but trust us: they’re even better in person.
Now in its seventeenth year, the juried exhibition was established under an initiative by Governor Jim Geringer, and organized under the auspices of the Wyoming State Museum and the Wyoming Arts Council.
The Wyoming State Museum is located in the Barrett Building, 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. The State Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
