Laramie Mural Project

Grainery Grove is almost done and truly does transform the alley way beside the Whole Earth Grainery!  Our thanks to Meghan for a great addition to our downtown environment and to Vince Arbor for working with the Laramie Mural Project.

Vince has been a long-time enthusiast for murals and street art.  A mural from 1976 remains adjacent to Meghan's new work and a truck behind Whole Earth Grainery became the canvas for two other local street artists a few years ago with Vince's blessing.  

In the coming weeks, we expect to see Talal Cockar complete his mural, Tierra y Libertad, just a few doors down at the Big Hollow Food Co-op and to see the third mural of the Laramie Mural Project get underway.

The Laramie Mural Project is a partnership between Laramie Mains Street Associates and the University of Wyoming Art Museum.  It has been funded in part by the Guthrie Family Foundation, the Wyoming Art Council, the Laramie Beautification Committee, and the City of Laramie.
