Riverton local is honorable mention in Wyoming Arts Council Fellowships

    Cameron Fehring, of Riverton, submitted his original musical, ‘The Retail Song Cycle’ to the Wyoming Arts Council Fellowship. The original musical had a reading at the Robert A. Peck Arts Center at CWC in June 2018 and there are plans for future performances in the works.

    Fehring says, “I’m honored to be recognized among Wyoming’s finest artists.”

    If that name sounds familiar you might recognize him as a recent guest on 10Cast. Check out what Cameron has planned for Riverton here.
