About the Wyoming Arts Alliance

WyAA is a nonpartisan, statewide non-profit 501c(3) organization dedicated to improving the climate for arts and culture throughout the state.

Vision:  More Art. Better Wyoming

Mission:  The mission of the Wyoming Arts Alliance (WyAA) is to advance a creative and culturally-vibrant state.

WyAA strives to represent citizens in all regions of the state. Because public funding . . particularly state arts funding . . has played an important role in building Wyoming’s cultural infrastructure, the Wyoming Arts Alliance focuses much of its attention on the preservation and expansion of state and local arts support.

To accomplish its goal of strengthening cultural development in Wyoming, WyAA engages in the following activities:

  • provides statewide leadership in advocating for arts and culture to enhance Wyoming’s quality of life
  • coordinates the work of a legislative lobbyist to advocate for the interests of Wyoming’s art & culture community
  • informs Wyoming citizens of state and federal arts initiatives, issues and trends
  • synchronizes arts advocacy efforts by communities, constituents and supporters

The Wyoming Arts Alliance is managed by eight Board members and one part-time staff person . . all passionate about Wyoming culture and committed to making a difference in cultural development throughout Wyoming.
