(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – The Wyoming Arts Council will hold an annual artist roster application review panel by conference call on Jan. 24, 8 a.m.-noon.  Staff members will be participating in the call from the Arts Council Gallery, 2320 Capitol Ave., Cheyenne.

Every year, the WAC invites Wyoming artists to apply to be included on the roster. A panel of artists and arts professionals then convenes to review the applications and rate them using criteria in six categories.  Their recommendations are provided to the Wyoming Arts Council Board.

Persons interested in listening in on the proceedings can get the access number by contacting the WAC at 307-777-7742.

Final decisions on Roster Artists will be made by the Wyoming Arts Council Board during the February 27-28, quarterly business meeting at Little America in Cheyenne.

The mission of the Wyoming Arts Council is to provide leadership and invest resources to sustain, promote and cultivate excellence in the arts.  To view the current artist roster, go to www.wyomingartscouncil.org.
