CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The 2024 Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition deadline for entries is Nov. 18.

Held at the Wyoming State Capitol, the exhibition is a biennial juried exhibit that celebrates the work of Wyoming artists. The exhibition was established in 2000 under an initiative by Governor Geringer and is organized by the Wyoming State Museum and the Wyoming Arts Council, according to a press release.

Any artist currently living in Wyoming may submit work for the Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition for consideration.

There is no fee to enter and artists can apply at https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=12485.

Per the release, the exhibition is the primary avenue for the state museum to acquire modern Wyoming art for its capitol and permanent collections. The art for the capitol collection is selected by the state’s five elected officials and representatives from other state agencies, while the museum’s curators select purchase artworks for the museum’s permanent art collection. All other artwork in the exhibition is available for sale to the general public.

The juried exhibition will be on display from Feb. 9 through Aug. 10, 2024, at the Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne. This year’s juror is Terri Porta from Billings, Montana, a multidisciplinary artist, place-maker, activist and community advocate for the arts.
