The Laramie Public Art Coalition's mission is to enhance the unique visual and cultural vibrancy of Laramie and Albany County, in a manner that encourages participation and engagement from all our citizens and visitors.
LPAC does not select art, but exists to facilitate those who want to engage in a public art project.
LPAC is an independent, non-profit coalition that provides the greater Laramie community with a structure and inclusive processes to create successful public art projects that reflect the community’s identities and values and contribute to Laramie and Albany County's vitality.
LPAC is an organization independent of the city, county and university. LPAC is comprised of representatives from Albany County Commission, Laramie City Council, Laramie Beautification Committee, Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, Laramie Main Street Association, Laramie Parks and Recreation Department, the University of Wyoming, and community members. The Wyoming Community Foundation is our fiscal sponsor while we work to obtain nonprofit status.
LPAC recognizes that public art is a catalyst to connect residents and visitors to culture, the environs and one another. It enhances the quality of life in Laramie and articulates Laramie’s role as one of the state’s cultural hubs. Because public art is freely accessible to all and located in the public sphere, it enhances people’s experiences of public places and provides opportunities for building community and connections.
Public art is not just about paintings on a wall - it’s about bringing art to every aspect of the community, giving community members a voice in their public space, respecting artists and the profession, and working together with artists to create cultural experiences that reflect the vibrancy and richness of our great community. We strive to make the public art process as transparent and inclusive as possible.
