NIC receives $15,000 Wyoming Community Foundation grant

The Nicolaysen Art Museum & Discovery Center in Casper has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Wyoming Community Foundation for general operating support. The grant was awarded by the Casper Area Community Foundation.

“It is support like this that allows the NIC to build programs that underscore the vibrancy of our exhibitions, collections and educational efforts,” NIC Executive Director Connie Gibbons said.

The grant was made possible through the Schneider Fund held by the Wyoming Community Foundation.  This charitable organization builds and preserves funds established by individuals, families, corporations, agencies, and private foundations. The foundation uses the earnings from these funds to benefit community needs across the state of Wyoming. For more information, go to

P.S.: For this fiscal year, the NIC received an Arts Education Biennial Grant and an Operating Support Grant from the Wyoming Arts Council.
