For the last three years the Laramie Mural Project has been fully funded by grants. Now it is up to you, our fans and our community to support this project! Help us continue to beautiful our historic downtown while putting Laramie on the map as a public art destination by donating today!
With your help, we will continue to create large-scale murals in downtown Laramie that are reflective of our area's cultural and social assets.
Check out some of the mural concepts for 2013 and 2014:

These proposals, and others like them, will only be created with the help of your donations. We have $12,000 in remaining grant funds that will cover the costs of 3 to 4 murals this summer BUT, we have walls, ideas and enthusiasm for another 5 to 7 murals for this fall and summer 2014! To fulfill this potential, we need to raise an additional $15,000.
All donations to this project are tax deductible according to the IRS regulations as the fiscal sponsor, the Laramie Main Street Alliance, is a 501(c) (3) non profit. (Costs of gifts/rewards will be deducted from the donation amount unless otherwise indicated). Every donor will receive his or her name or businesses name printed in the final exhibit brochure for the project and through our social media and electronic outlets.
Who We Are
Mural artist Jeff Hubbell proudly considers himself a Laramie local. Although he is passionate about traveling he always loves coming home to Laramie because it is such a loving and creative environment. His artistic goal is to share that love and creativity from an unexpected perspective.
Meghan Meier is a local tattooist and owner of Rolling Tattoo. She is interested in how geometric and abstract forms can be made to represent the local landscape, and often paints whimsical scenes of anthropomorphic animals or trees.
Travis Ivey is a 5th generation Wyoming native. His paintings reflect the beauty of the modern west and the impacts of development on the landscape. While Ivey is drawn to the more industrial environments, he enjoys exploring opportunities to paint a wide range of subjects. Painting en plein air has helped him continue to learn new ways to develop stylistically, and maintain a fresh perspective in his studio work. Travis Ivey's work is in numerous public and private collections including the University of Wyoming and The Wyoming State Museum.
Dan Toro is a local artist who enjoys the creative voice art can bring out in all mediums. Dan is very thankful for the opportunity to be within a group of artists who desire to transform the Laramie community with art by brightening small areas of the city one wall at a time.
Talal Cockar specializes in Custom Automotive paint applications, illustration, hand-painted signs, as well as Interior and Exterior applications of Murals and Wall Design.

Risks and challenges
We at the Laramie Mural Project understand that each project has its own unique set of challenges. Some of our risks that may arise and delay our project include:
A snow storm in July
Artists stranded on a scissor lift
Locust migration, or worse, paint eating locust migration
Sunburn, especially while painting southern facing walls
Coloring outside the lines
Paparazzi swarming artists
Rival gang of artists not liking our designs and painting over them at night
If these setbacks do arise, know that our team is ready to meet them with determination and grit. We are Wyomingites after all.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
