Starting late summer, the 2013 Leadership Cheyenne Class, in partnership with the Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Development Authority, and the City of Cheyenne will commission artists to create designs for traffic control boxes in the downtown Cheyenne area.
Artists will be selected by a judging committee based upon submitted portfolios. Selected artists will then be tasked with creating an original piece of art inspired by Wyoming's culture, industry, landscape, or history which can be translated into a three-dimensional vinyl wrap. Original artwork will then be auctioned off at the 2013 "Boo Ball" to raise funds for the project.
Interested? Follow the steps below:
1 Artists send in or drop off ten digital examples of past work, letter of interest, and resume. Submission deadline is July 8th.
2 A judging committee made up of representatives from stakeholder groups will review the applications and choose artists with whom to work. Additional artists will be selected to produce 2 "back-up" pieces and for placement in a registry for future designs in the event
more boxes and/or funds become available.

5 Original artwork will be auctioned off at the Boo Ball, October 19th, to raise funds for
the beautification project.
