The fall 2019 edition of Artscapes is our Arts Summit Issue! Featuring stories on the Wyoming Arts Council Folk and Traditional Arts Mentoring Project Grants and Fellowship Recipients, Jim Jackson, the National Heritage Followship winner, and Plein Air in the Parks in Sinks Canyon.
Next issue is due out in Winter 2019.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2014, there were 11,451 jobs devoted to our state’s creative sector, which is 30% above the national average and second only to New York.
The Arts contributed $763.6 billion to the U.S. economy in 2015, 4.2 percent of GDP and counted 4.9 million workers, who earned $372 billion in total compensation.
The Wyoming Arts Council believes that experiencing the arts should be accessible for all, including people with mental and/or physical disabilities, older adults, military/veterans, people living in institutions and those who lack access to the arts due to geographic isolation, cultural difference and economic hardship.
