Arts Cheyenne is pleased to announce its newest project for 2023–the Cheyenne Creativity Center (CCC). The Center is a space for visual and performing artists to gather, learn, and create together in a collaborative environment. The Center is a pilot 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.

Starting in February, 2023, The Cheyenne Creativity Center will offer monthly workshops and classes, providing an opportunity for our local artists to learn and grow. Check back to see what we’ll have going on!

 

The Cheyenne Creativity Center has regular, rotating exhibitons featuring local artists. Most of the work we feature is through our Emerging Artist’s program. Click below to view our current Call for Artists to learn how to submit.

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.
