The Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation hosted the “These Boots Are Made For Talking” Big Boot program in 2004. From these big boots, a licensing program has been initiated through a New York licensing company – King Features – to have products manufactured with the images of the boots.
To increase the number of boot images for the licensing program, the Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation hosted an Images of the West! Artist Competition this spring and summer. Regional artists were invited to submit artwork in the form of a cowboy boot. If the artwork was accepted, the image(s) were submitted into the licensing program. The Artist Competition also offered three prize placements. First prize was a $1,500 cash award, with the second prize at $1,000 and the third prize at $500.
The Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation is pleased to announce the following winners:
1st Prize – Ross Lampshire from Loveland, CO
2nd Prize – Max Larkin from Cheyenne, WY
3rd Prize (Tie) – Rose Burrows from Cheyenne, WY and
Paige Money from Buffalo, WY
These artists will receive their prize packages and will be honored at an Artist Reception and Awards Presentation on Thursday, October 25th.
The Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation is also initiating the 2008 Images of the West! Artist Competition at the Artist Reception. Interested artists are encouraged to contact the Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation at 307-637-3376 or go to the website at www.cheyennedepotmuseumfoundation.org for more information.
