Art from the heart

To me, there is something special about street art and murals that depict a local history or emphasis.  Yes, there are unsightly presentations plastered on many walls, doors and wherever, but the artists who deliberately paint history and visual messages deserve special recognition. 

I wondered about the artists of the various murals on buildings throughout downtown Laramie, Wyoming, during our brief stay there.  We wandered the streets looking for the art, and ran out of time to locate all of them. 

According to the Laramie Mural Project, http://www.laramiemuralproject.org/,  the Laramie, Wyoming, mural project uses local artists to create one-of-a-kind, large-scale murals in the heart of downtown that reflect Laramie’s cultural life. 

“Founded in 2011 as a collaboration between the University of Wyoming Art Museum, local Laramie artists and the Laramie Main Street Alliance, the project is currently co-hosted by Main Street and the Laramie Public Art Coalition.

As I gazed on each expression, I could sense the depth of meaning and the passion displayed so beautifully.  I applaud these wonderful artists. 

Walking tour brochures were provided by the Albany County Tourism Board and can be downloaded here (pdf).  You can use this pdf file to compare with the images we gathered, plus it has a list of the artists. 

As long as art and paintings are classy, don’t discourage others and don’t reflect negatively on others, I appreciate them.  I think Laramie artists provided a wonderful display. 

What story can you interpret from these images?

Blessings along the Way!
