Downtown Rock Springs – Blues & Brews and Art Work!


Create art to color the pedestrian underpass in
Downtown Rock Springs

 Rock Springs, WY –  The Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency is pleased to announce the Art Underground Gallery, an exciting new project designed to bring life, color and art to the pedestrian underpass in Downtown Rock Springs.  The gallery is also meant encourage the community to get involved in adding color and creativity to our public spaces. Residents of all ages are invited to create an individual mural that will be displayed in the underpass, semi-permanently.

A limited number of primed canvases (2’ by 4’ plywood) are available for the community to pick up, free of charge.  They can be picked up from the Rock Springs Main Street/URA office at 603 S Main Street in Downtown Rock Springs.   Completed canvases should be returned to the Rock Springs Main Street/URA office by September 1, 2015.  Because there are a limited number of canvases, they are available on a first come, first served basis.  Once all canvases have been given out, we can no longer accept entries.


Guidelines for murals:

  • All artwork must be the artist’s individual work in design and execution.
  • Work must be able to withstand outdoor display; two coats of marine grade primer are highly recommended.
  • Work must be suitable for all ages.
  • Committee has the right to determine the suitability of work.
  • All mediums and themes are welcome.
  • Canvases will be displayed in the pedestrian underpass which can be somewhat dark so artists are encouraged to created pieces that are bright and colorful.

The installation will be unveiled at a ribbon cutting and public reception on September 16. Submissions will be photographed and posted on the Downtown Rock Springs Facebook page.  For entry forms and more details, visit, or call 307-352-1434. Special thanks to Superior Lumber & Bloedorn Lumber for the supplies.

SHERIDAN:  WYO Theater Gala presents “Anything Goes”, October 20

From Sheridan Chamber of Commerce:  The WYO Theater’s Annual Fundraising Gala features the musical “Anything Goes”, winner of three 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical. Cole Porter’s classic stars your favorite local talent in an unforgettably fun and willfully silly musical. As the SS American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love … proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise, and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of the musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s Delovely,” and of course “Anything Goes.” The October 20th performance is the big gala event, with hors d’oeurves and drinks preceding the performance. Doors open at 6:00 pm, curtain at 7:30 pm. Tickets for the gala evening are $100 per person. For more information and to purchase tickets (when available), contact the WYO Theater box office at (307) 672-9084 or online at Encore performance will be October 25-28.
