Travis Ivey was the first artist to begin working with the Laramie Mural Project in 2011. He is a 5th generation Wyoming native. His paintings reflect the beauty of the modern west and the impacts of development on the landscape. While Ivey is drawn to the more industrial environments, he enjoys exploring opportunities to paint a wide range of subjects. Painting en plein air has helped him continue to learn new ways to develop stylistically, and maintain a fresh perspective in his studio work. Travis painted Hollyhock Haven in 2011, Crossing Sherman Hill in 2013 and worked on the collaborative fish mural, Gill Street.

Chelsea Lowry joined the Laramie Mural Project in 2014 out of a desire to give back to the community. She was born in Laramie and was thrilled to return in 2010 and found that the community valued freedom of expression, local pride, gorgeous natural spaces, honest western courtesy and genuine care for one’s neighbor.  As an artist and contributing member of the project, Chelsea hopes to create art that not only expresses the splendor of Laramie as a unique place and art that encourages visitors to find beauty and pride in the Gem City.

Colleen Friday is an artist whose artwork starts as penciled geometric designs on graph paper that then make their way into digital collages, lasercut jewelry, fabric prints and aerosol paintings.  She uses designs handed down from her mother, a beadwork artist, as well as new imagery inspired by Arapaho symbolism and stories. She sees a connection between how she uses layers of geometric stencil designs with aerosol paint and how Native beadwork artists use different patterns with beads, often changing colors or sizes or recombining with new elements to create original designs and their own distinct style. Colleen Friday is an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, whose ancestors inhabited southeastern Wyoming, southwestern Nebraska and Colorado.
