2017 Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition Call for Entries

The call for entries for Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition is underway and entry information is now available on the Wyoming State Museum website: http://wyomuseum.state.wy.us/Exhibits/GCAE.aspx. The postmark deadline is September 15.

Now in its 17th year, this juried exhibition will be on display January through March at the Wyoming State Museum at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. This year’s juror is painter and muralist Archie Rand of Brooklyn, N.Y. All Wyoming visual artists working and living in the state are invited to enter.

Established in 2000 under an initiative by Governor Jim Geringer, and organized under the auspices of the Wyoming State Museum and the Wyoming Arts Council, the Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition celebrates the work of Wyoming artists. 

The State’s five elected officials and representatives from other state agencies participating in the program select purchase award winners. Works receiving purchase awards join the Wyoming State Museum’s prestigious capitol art collection. 

All other artwork in the exhibition is available for sale to the general public. The Wyoming State Museum uses proceeds from these sales to add art to its permanent collection.

For more information, please call (307)777-7022

The Wyoming State Museum is located in the Barrett Building, 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. The State Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
