WAC roster panel to meet in Cheyenne Jan. 21

The Wyoming Arts Council will hold its annual artist roster selection panel on Thursday, Jan. 21, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., in the Arts Council Gallery, 2320 Capitol Ave., Cheyenne.

The meeting is open to the public.

Every year, the WAC invites applications for its roster. A panel of artists and arts professionals then convenes to review the applicants and select those that meet the criteria of “artistic merit of the artist” and “ability of the artist to successfully interact with an audience or in a public setting.”

Last year, the panel selected 13 new artists and arts groups, raising the number of talented Wyoming roster artists to 65. Any Wyoming arts organization, school or community can bring in any of these artists through an Arts Across Wyoming grant.
