Wyoming Arts Council

Wyoming Arts Advocacy Day is Feb. 13

This notice coimes from Phyllis Colpitts of the Wyoming Arts Alliance:

Arts Advocacy Day 2009 will be Friday, Feb. 13, at the Wyoming Capitol Building in Cheyenne. Wyoming singer/songwriter Bryan Ragsdale of Green River (a Wyoming Arts Council roster artist) will be performing for our Legislators at 10 a.m. that day. At the close of the session at noon, Wyoming Arts Alliance is providing a box lunch for the Legislators in the Herschler Tunnel. For those of you not familiar with the Capitol, there is a tunnel that links the Capitol Building and the Herschler Building to the immediate north. This underground passage is heavily used by legislators as it is also a direct route to the parking garage. On display in the Tunnel will be visual arts, performing artists and information about the state of the arts in Wyoming and any pertinent Legislative bills pending.

If you can arrange your schedules to be a part of this event; please do so. This is your opportunity to talk with your Senator or Representative about what the arts mean to you. If you are unable to attend, email your legislator with your comments.

Note: Due to the Presidents’ Day holiday, the legislative session will close at noon Friday and will not convene on Monday, Feb. 16.
