“The arts in Wyoming thrive thanks to a variety of strong supporters and networks. The Governor’s Arts Awards are an opportunity to look to your arts community for those who have had an impact and nominate them for this special and significant recognition,” says Rachel Clifton, Wyoming Arts Council Executive Director.
Established in 1982, the Governor’s Arts Awards recognize excellence in the arts and outstanding service to the arts in Wyoming. These awards were first made possible by an endowment from the Union Pacific Foundation in honor of Mrs. John U. Loomis, a lifelong patron of the arts. Over the years, individuals and organizations from more than 30 Wyoming communities and statewide organizations have been honored for their dedication to the arts in Wyoming. The 2023 recipients will be honored at a dinner and awards ceremony in Cheyenne on Feb. 23, 2024. Find a complete list of past GAA recipients here.
