Wyoming's First Quarantine-Friendly Art Gallery Is Helping Low Income Families
A new virtual gallery has made it possible for those self-distancing to still enjoy the arts. It Takes A Village is the brainchild of Cheyenne-based artist Bria Hammock and is Wyoming's first quarantine-friendly art gallery.
Visitors can either take a 360-degree virtual tour online, or view the exhibit through the first floor windows of The Array Building in Cheyenne, a safe distance away from each other.
The exhibit is a fundraiser to benefit Support Our Students, a local nonprofit that helps low-income families with children in school. Hammock said she wanted to combine art and technology as a way to give back to her community during this time of need.
"Not only can this fundraiser reach Cheyenne and locals here but with it being a virtual gallery, the footprint is so much larger," she said.
All pieces are available for purchase as originals or prints. Tour the online gallery at briahammock.com or in-person at The Array Building, 106 E. Lincolnway, Cheyenne, until May 30.
