The WAC premieres a new facebook page and exciting new content

If you've connected with the Wyoming Arts Council on facebook recently, you might have noticed that we have a new look. Over the past month, the WAC has been moving from a personal profile (the kind an individual maintains) to a fan page. This new format has opened up new possibilities for us, as fans of the arts and Wyoming can now 'like' our page and receive updates from us, while we engage in a network of regional and national arts organizations made possible by social media.

Thus far we have posted some updates on the Wyoming arts scene (like summer music festivals and art exhibitions) and shared stories that inspired us (like a Q&A with Denver's new Public Art Program Manager or the Jackson-connected Burning Man installation "Flutter Tunnel"). But today, as the end of our old page fast approaches (August 13th), we launched a new, original feature Five Questions Friday. In Five Questions we catch up with a Wyoming artist/writer/performer to read their answers to (you guessed it) five questions! For the inaugural post we featured Laramie poet Kristen Gunther, who gave thoughtful and inspiring answers, which should not be missed. Here's a preview to pique your interest: "Compasses, ecology, lots of elk." 

We hope to see (and hear from) you there!
