Traveling Art Show Builds Bridges For Lander Area Residents

  • Local Champion: Trinity Episcopalian Church
  • Date Funded: September 1, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $3,000

In Lander, a town rich in culture and heritage, there are occasionally misunderstandings between the Indigenous population and other residents—which in some instances have led to community tension. To address this problem, regional leaders from the Northern Arapahoe tribe worked with Episcopal Church in Wyoming to launch the Grounded Arts initiative, a traveling art show and community discussion series intended to spark conversations and strengthen community relationships. To make it a reality, though, they needed funding so they reached out to LOR for help. LOR’s funding will help support the six-week exhibition, which launches this fall, featuring 15 Indigenous artists, eight of whom are from the Lander area, and will include panels, book discussions, and Indigenous cuisine. Grounded Arts will then travel around Wyoming and the United States, helping to deepen understanding beyond just Lander.
