Wyoming has a strong visual arts community, with artists around the state working in a variety of mediums, from sculpture to public art and murals, to printmaking, painting, photography and videography. Artists, galleries and museums, and organizations are encouraged to create a public profile on the new Wyoming Artists & Venues Directory and self-select the different visual arts categories that describe their work.
The Wyoming Arts Council supports the visual arts in a variety of ways. The Visual Arts Fellowships are awarded every year and are open to artists working in any 2D or 3D medium. These Fellowships are posted in the winter and announced in early spring at the annual conference, CLICK! A Weekend for Wyoming Visual Artists. The Arts Council also supports the Biennial Fellowship Exhibition, which features the artwork of fellowship recipients from the past two years.
Visual artists may apply for a Professional Development and Career Advancement grant. This grant is made available on May 1 and applications are accepted and reviewed until funding is expended. Visit the grants page for full details.
Calls for entry are sometimes available through the Arts Council’s Art in Public Buildings program. The Arts Council uses CaFE to post public art calls. CaFE is a free service for artists to use and is a great resource for artists to find open calls around the country.
