Laramie Mural Project Kickstarter Success

Laramie artist Travis Ivey works on the outline of his mural, "Crossing Sherman Hill"

A big thank you goes out to all of the backers of the Laramie Mural Project Kickstarter campaign.  The campaign, which aimed to raise $15,000 in one month's time to provide funds for additional murals, was successfully funded yesterday.  There are still 5 days remaining in the campaign, meaning that any donations received from now until July 21 are additional funds above and beyond the goal.

Work is currently underway on two new murals, one by Travis Ivey and one by Meghan Meier.  Ivey's mural is located on the north facing wall of Modern Printing, and Meier is continuing her popular mural, "Grainery Grove" onto the north side of what is now The Big Dipper.

Additional murals for this summer include one by Jeff Hubbell, and plans are being made for another mural by Dan Toro.  With the funds raised through Kickstarter, the Laramie Mural Project will continue into the summer of 2014, with even more colorful murals being added to downtown next summer.

Thank you to all of the friends and supporters of the Laramie community and the Laramie Mural Project!
