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.
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
Join us for FREE programming featuring queer artists. Pre-registration is required so we can stay safe and socially distant. Masks are required in the building.
Kehinde Wiley Style Portraits
FREE - Pre-registration required
Students will create their very own fabulous self-portrait inspired by queer figural painters. By painting over photos and collaging colorful backgrounds, each student will be able to create a gorgeous piece of art that celebrates their unique identity. Students should bring a fairly large photo of themselves or someone they’d like to paint (fitting on an 11” x 14” canvas)
**Class size is limited to Art Room occupancy
