Wyoming – Number 8


Holding its spot from 2009, Wyoming spends $2.14 per person for the arts. Is it surprising to you that Wyoming is in the top ten? More traditional arts and crafts are supported in this state. The Jackson Hole Center for the Arts is a great contemporary venue. Check out this article of a recent show there. Wyoming Arts Council also gives individual artist awards. Wyoming Arts Alliance is also a great resource for Wyoming Artists. Perhaps Wyoming’s abundance of oil and emphasis on tourism are the reasons for its investment in the arts.
