Two murals are now underway for the Laramie Mural Project, an extension of the UW Art Museum's public art exhibition, Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational.  Last night Meghan Meier started to work on her mural at Whole Earth Grainery.  Titled Grainery Grove, she says of her design concept: One of my favorite things about living in Laramie is how easy it is to get to the mountains.  And there has always been something special about finding yourself suddenly in an aspen grove.  So I thought I could contribute something along those line to downtown, people could stumble int an aspen grove . . . and appreciate how lucky we are in where we live and the resources we have."

Our sincere thanks to Vince Arbour and Whole Earth Grainery for his enthusiasm in contributing the wallspace for Grainery Grove!

Meanwhile Talal Cockar nears completion on his large mural at Big Hollow Food Co-op.  

The Laramie Mural Project is a partnership with Laramie Main Street Associates and funded in part by the Wyoming Arts Council, Guthrie Family Foundation, Laramie Beautification Committee, and the City of Laramie.
