Loving Wyoming

 

Loving Wyoming is a project that the Wyoming Fine Arts Center has created to facilitate celebrations of the LGBTQIA+ community while teaching our students the power of acceptance, love, and courage through the lens of queer creatives. This will take place through curriculum in our art classes taught by queer teachers inspired by LGBTQIA+ art history, ending with a celebratory art exhibition at The Center during pride month.

Our FREE pride programming has returned for 2021-2022.

The objectives of this program are:

  • To create a more inclusive community
  • Continue to teach students the importance and power of love and acceptance
  • Share work on social media to spread awareness to the city at large 
  • Collaborating with queer creatives and giving artists a platform to show work
  • Create an environment of diversity and inclusion that builds a stronger team and city

    Each month's Loving Wyoming project will focus on various artists and inspirations from the LQBTQIA+ community.  If there are special cultural and heritage celebrations for the month, we will be focusing on LQBTQIA+ artists from those communities as well.  Create, learn, and make new friends at our Loving Wyoming classes!
