Laramie artist Meghan Meier is nearly complete with her mural at Whole Earth Grainery on Ivinson!  Not only has she created an intriguing work for the site, she been able to respect an existing work (to the left of her mural) from 1973!  

Meier's work is part of the Laramie Mural Project which is an extension of Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational, a temporary exhibition of large scale public art that originated in 2008 by the University of Wyoming Art Museum.  The Laramie Mural Project is a partnership between the museum and Laramie Main Street Associates.

The Art Museum and Main Street are hard at work trying to finalize at least three more murals this year.  The project pairs an artist with a building owner to enable enlivening our historic downtown through art.  Funds have been provided by the Guthrie Family Foundation, the Wyoming Arts Council, the Laramie Beautification Committee, and the City of Laramie.
