They’re calling it a town hall meeting; “Where have the KC Apartments gone?”. Those driving the Sunshine Apartments project, going up across the street from the NIC, want to share an update on the construction, plus details about a public art project planned for the property.

Nicolayson Curator, Lisa Hatchadoorian says a 50 thousand dollar grant from the National Endowment for the Arts is making the art part of the project possible.

“We along with the WCDA, City of Casper and Grimshaw Investments-the company that’s actually building the apartments- applied as a consortium to the NEA for funding for a public art project that is a pilot project with low income housing, green building, and public art within Wyoming.”

She says a jury has selected three finalist from over 80 international artist applicants.  “The criteria that we were looking at; What was the strength of their experience with public art? Most of all, how did they respond to the needs of the community and the history of the place that they were going into.”

The three finalist, all from the U.S. will be in town next Thursday October 27th for a site visit and while they are here the NIC and its partners, will present the project and the finalists to the public.

“And we’ll be going over the project as a whole and what it means for Casper, how it came together and the artists themselves will get a chance to present a little bit about their work and their philosophy regarding public art.”

The finalists include a team of two from Wisconsin, an individual from Kansas City and another from New York. The public is invited to meet them and join a discussion on revitalization, sustainability and public art at the Nicolaysen Art Museum, 400 East Collins Drive in Casper next Thursday 5:30pm.
