About & The Making Of
The Laramie Mural Project utilizes local artists to create one-of-a-kind large-scale murals in the heart of downtown that reflect Laramie’s cultural assets. Founded in 2011 as a collaboration between the University of Wyoming Art Museum, local Laramie artists and the Laramie Main Street Alliance, the project is currently co-hosted by Main Street and the Laramie Public Art Coalition.
Walking tour brochures are provided by the Albany County Tourism Board and can be downloaded here. Printed copies are available at the Main Street office at 207 Grand, the Tourism Board at 210 Custer and the UW Art Museum at 211 E. Willett Drive.
How to Support the Murals
Since 2011, funding for the murals has been provided by: The Albany County Tourism Board (marketing materials), the community through a 2013 Kickstarter campaign, the Guthrie Family Foundation, the Laramie Beautification Committee, Blue Federal Credit Union, Atmosphere Mountainworks, the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund and the Wyoming Arts Council through the the Wyoming Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Storage for mural supplies generously donated by: The Laramie Boomerang.
