The Wyoming Arts Council will hold its quarterly board meeting in Evanston on Aug. 12-13. It will be held in the Roundhouse Patterson Visitor’s Center, 1440 Main Street.

Proceedings will begin at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12. The board invites individuals and organizational representatives to attend any part of the meeting to observe the board process, and to address the board during the public comment session beginning at 4:30 p.m. Comments about the agency’s policies, funding priorities, on-line granting system, and other arts-related topics are welcomed.

Following that session, WAC board and staff members invite the public to a free reception at Serendipity Books & Antiques, 900 Main St., from 5:30-7 p.m.

The board will reconvene at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13, at the Patterson Visitor’s Center. The main topic of discussion is the WAC’s long-range planning process for 2015-2020. The Arts Council conducts town meetings around the state every five years in order to develop long-range plan for the arts in Wyoming.

To that end, the WAC will conduct a town meeting in Evanston prior to the board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 7-8:30 p.m., at the Uinta B.O.C.E.S. #1 Education Center, Room 203, 1013 Cheyenne Dr., Suite A.

WAC Executive Director Michael Lange urges people to attend and “bring your comments, suggestions and dreams of the future for the arts in Wyoming.”

The mission of the Wyoming Arts Council is to enhance the quality of life for the people of Wyoming by providing resources to sustain, promote and cultivate the arts.
