UPDATE: New “Women of Wyoming” Mural Coming To Downtown Casper
UPDATE: Scroll down for updated pictures and video of the mural.
Casper is currently home to 10 murals, and thanks to the Casper Mural Project, it will soon be 11.
In a Facebook post, they announced that they have picked not only the theme for our newest mural but the artist as well.
The mural's location will be on Downtown Center street, right next to our popular Western Wear clothing store, The Cadilac Cowgirl.
The theme is "Women of Wyoming," and the artist Koda Witsken has collaborated with the Eastern Shoshone Cultural Center to create her artistic interpretation of the theme.
John Griffith, Curb Appeal Painting, Paint Services, and Ramkota worked together to prime the wall so that it would be prepared for Witsken. As of now, the estimated completion is August 30.
In a statement released by The Casper Mural Project, Witsken said
This project is beyond powerful because we are infusing meaning and intent in every step of the planning and installation processes. The intention of the 2022 mural was to highlight the women of Wyoming, and we are doing just that. We have women photographers, models, administrators, and painters at the project's helm. I am honored to work with the Cultural Center and CMP to tell a story of modern Wyoming women!
