Explore the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street exhibit on all three floors of the library to learn about our identity as rural Americans, who we were, who we are, and where we are going. Enjoy a variety of Crossroads events and activities, as well as an art exhibit, Art at the Wyoming Crossroads, featuring work by Joshua Brady, Narissa Kennedy, Danielle Kirby, and Steve Knox.
Crossroads: Change in Rural America has been made possible in Cheyenne by Wyoming Humanities. Crossroads: Change in Rural America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
Art at the Wyoming Crossroads
Art is located on the 1st floor in the elevator display case, in the entrance gallery display case, and hanging on the wall outside of the Book Sale Room.
The artists included in the exhibit – Joshua Brady, Narissa Kennedy, Danielle Kirby, and Steve Knox – are all homegrown talents. Each attended local Laramie County schools, and are now all professional artists that work in creative fields throughout our community.
Relationships with our surroundings and with each other connect the work of the four artists. Each artist’s vision and expression is unique from the others, yet all reflect an aspect of life as a Wyomingite. The pieces on display all illustrate and embody themes seen in the Smithsonian’s Crossroads: Change in Rural America exhibit, which is located throughout the library until January 23rd.
