SHERIDAN — The Wyoming Arts Council has announced two new national calls for public art. The deadline to apply for both projects is Nov. 15; Wyoming artists will be given preference.
The first project is for Central Wyoming College, located in Riverton, which is constructing a new Agriculture and Animal Science Center. The new facility will house programs in Agriculture, Crop and Soil Sciences, Equine Studies, and Farrier Science, as well as the CWC Rodeo team and a meat processing program.
The committee is interested in work for the exterior of the building by the main entrance that helps define the building and the programs it houses. The work should visually guide people toward the entrance, stated a WAC press release.
The second project is for the University of Wyoming, which recently completed construction on the Engineering Education and Research Building in Laramie. The new facility includes various laboratory spaces, a makerspace, student innovation and project space, and the Dean’s office.
The committee has identified several locations that may be conducive for artwork: both entryways, common areas around the building, or the central area/atrium in the center of the building. The committee is more interested in monumental, sculptural, or relief work, according to the press release, and is less interested in 2D work.
