The Cheyenne Creativity Center is Cheyenne’s Art Center–bringing together performing and visual arts in a new environment designed for creative learning, growth and education.

We regularly have calls for art for our upcoming exhibitions posted here!

The Cheyenne Creativity Center offers monthly workshops and classes, providing an opportunity for our local artists and creatives to learn and grow.

The Gift Shop featured in the Creativity Center is intended for artists, both emerging and professional, to have a place to display and sell their original creations.

Types of Artwork Accepted: 

  • Wall hung art: paintings, drawings, photography, serigraphs, printmaking and prints of original artworks
  • Wearable art: scarves, clothing, jewelry, hats, purses, etc. 
  • 3-Dimensional and functional art: glass work, pottery and ceramics, wood carvings, sculpture, mixed media assemblage
  • Other art items: greeting cards, forge work (knives/cutlery), woodwork, etc.

Any Artist wishing to be considered for displaying their original fine art/crafts for sale must complete the online submission form to be considered. Gift shop submissions are reviewed on the 15th of every month, and artists are contacted within a week of that review period. In the instance that we no longer have room to support new artwork, artists will be notified and placed on a waiting list. 

Program Overview

The Emerging Artist Program (EAP) is designed to offer education, training, curation and real-world experience for emerging artists in the Cheyenne and Laramie County area. The program is meant to create a space for these artists to learn how to show, sell and curate their work, while also managing events and workshops to help support a physical space. While the primary work featured in this space will be two and three dimensional artwork, there is an opportunity to incorporate installation, performance, and other art forms here as well. 

The EAP will operate in at 1620 Thomes Ave at the Cheyenne Creativity Center and features curated monthly shows, receptions, art events and discussions, workshops, and other arts-related activities, all facilitated by an organized group of the emerging artists themselves.

 

What is an ‘Emerging Artist?’

‘Emerging artists’ in Cheyenne/Laramie County are defined as artists at the early stages of their career, often new to exhibiting their work, and still defining their style and craft. They are looking for a place and an artist community in our area, and want to meet other artists and learn from one another. 

The target market for our emerging artists will come from upper-level local High School students, as well as art students at LCCC and UW who are ready for the program and to start exhibiting. This market does not eliminate anyone outside of this target group, but instead helps to define a starting point.

 

How to Get Involved:

If you’re an artist of any discipline, and would like to learn more, please reach out to the Emerging Artist Coordinator Tatiana Thompson via email: tatiana@artscheyenne.com

Arts Cheyenne launched the Cheyenne Creativity Center (CCC) in February, 2023. The Cheyenne Creativity Center is a space for visual and performing artists to gather, learn, and create together in a collaborative environment. The Center is a project for Arts Cheyenne to test the community’s response and need for an arts center, building up awareness, capacity, and funding for a permanent center in the future. 

The inaugural program of The Center is the ‘Emerging Artists Program’–a program designed to offer education, training, curation and real-world experience for Emerging Artists in the Cheyenne and Laramie County area. While focusing on Emerging Artists to start, the Cheyenne Creativity Center will also offer gallery shows, workshops and training open to all artists in Wyoming/Northern Colorado area.

Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.
