Cheyenne Civic Center has a Record Breaking Show

Artwork: “Storm Brewin’”; Vanda Eddington; Intermediate, Third Place; Works on Paper; Resident

Cheyenne came bouncing back in 2015 with a renewed vigor in the National Arts Program®. With some hard work and help from past participants the show set record breaking numbers with over 250 pieces displayed! The show which included works from 155 individual artists was hung in the Cheyenne Civic Center. This beautiful performing arts theatre is the perfect place to showcase the creative talents of this wonderful community.

The exhibit included so many beautiful works including the one pictured above by artist Vanda Eddington. Not only did Vanda take home third place for her piece entitled Storm Brewin’ but she takes home our award for the hardest working participant! Vanda had such great experiences in the past with the show that she took it upon herself to get involved and help promote the show. Her volunteer efforts were successful and helped save the show by encouraging so many new artists to sign up!

It’s a great feeling to know that the visual art talents of Cheyenne were once again brought forth for all to enjoy. We are so happy to say that we see a bright future with the City of Cheyenne and are hoping they will host our program for many, many years to come!
