A POPULAR JURIED ART EXHIBIT that displayed this fall in Northwest College in Powell has traveled to Cheyenne and is on display for the final two weeks of the legislative session.

The exhibit—called Public Lands, Personal Visions—features artwork in a variety of media from artists who live, work, and play in Wyoming’s spectacular Bighorn Basin.

The artwork can be viewed, for free, from approximately 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, until March 4, in the corridor gallery between the Herschler and Capitol buildings in Cheyenne, at 122 W 25th ST.

The corridor gallery is open to the public while the legislature is in session.

The purpose of the show is to inspire a visual dialogue about individuals’ myriad relationships with the public lands of the Bighorn Basin.

The show was so well received locally that we felt that others from around the state, including state-level decision makers, should have the opportunity to enjoy it, too.

The federal government is currently revising its plan for managing public lands in the Bighorn Basin. Click here the learn more, including how to participate in the plan revision process.
