(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Wyoming Arts Council met Thursday afternoon at the Riverton branch library and spent most of its Thursday’s session on the upcoming Governor’s Arts Awards.
“The board worked all afternoon and decided on the finalists that we’ll submit to the Governor for the Governor’s Arts Awards,” said the Art Council’s Manager Rita Basom. “That means we’ll have a full agenda for Friday’s half-day meeting.”
While in Riverton, the WAC Board will hear a progress report on the WAC’s Community Development and the Arts program; an update on the new communications strategy; review grant programs; and discuss upcoming WAC-sponsored events. Friday’s meeting begins at 8:30 a.m.
