Laramie Public Art and Laramie Area Visitor Center present TOPO-X video projection: Winning Video Shorts
The Laramie Public Art Coalition and the Laramie Area Visitor Center will host an opening to show the winning video shorts from their call for video art. The selected videos will be projected in downtown Laramie onto the Clure Brothers north wall in the Laramie Area Visitor Center office parking lot for three nights from 6-10pm, Thursday, February 28th, Friday, March 1st, and Saturday, March 2nd.
The public opening will be Thursday, February 28th, 5:30pm on site, 210 E Custer St, Laramie, WY, 82070. Dress warm and stop by to enjoy a taco bar and hot beverages while we introduce the artists and watch the videos. Kids welcome!
The projector will be housed in TOPO-X, a collaborative mobile observation, projection, and outreach project housed in a teardrop trailer. It was developed as an interdisciplinary project between visual artist Brandon S. Gellis, assistant professor at the University of Wyoming’s Department of Art and Art History; J.J. Shinker, associate professor in the Department of Geography; and Meg Thompson Stanton, artist and coordinator of the Laramie Public Art Coalition to help better build bridges between the UWYO and Albany County communities, art and science exploration, and a means to bring exciting visual art to our communities.
The Laramie Public Art Coalition is funded in part by Pete Lien & Sons Inc, Wyoming Arts Council, Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, Laramie Beautification Committee, Guthrie Family Foundation, Albany County, City of Laramie, and private donations. Laramie Area Visitor’s Center is funded by the 4% county lodging tax. Original seed funding for the TOPO-X trailer came from the University of Wyoming’s Biodiversity Institute Biodiversity in Arts grant.
