Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) (Release) An opening reception for the Wyoming State Museum temporary exhibit “Traveling Trout,” is scheduled for February 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room, Refreshments will be served.
On display through September 19, “Traveling Trout” features a series of three-foot-tall trout sculptures that were decorated by Wyoming high school students as part of a statewide art competition.
Offered by the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, with the assistance of the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund and Friess Foundation among others, the competition asked participants to transform plain white fiberglass trout into works of art.
