WCM was funded by the Wyoming Humanities Council and the Wyoming Arts Council to produce a documentary about New Deal artists in Wyoming. We have some leads but need more. Are there any historians out there who have any info or can point us in the right direction:
– EE Stevens murals in Niobrara County
– Jackson Pollock and Thomas Hart Benson in Saratoga during July 4th in the 1930s
– Alan True asked by Lester Hunt to design the license plate bucking horse
– Robert Russin did his WPA art elsewhere but moved to Wyoming and taught at UW
Production will happen when the weather breaks in the spring.
