The following performances and events are made possible by the generosity of the City of Rock Springs, Sweetwater BOCES, and the Wyoming Arts Council.
A school residency with Australian artist Paul Taylor will provide a unique learning experience for the students. Paul has been teaching students about Australian customs, music, dance and storytelling in Sweetwater County schools for twenty-two years and provides an exciting opportunity for the children to experience another culture. The residencies are on a yearly rotation in our school district and has been supported through grants and funds from Wyoming Arts Council and Sweetwater BOCES.
Two-week exhibits form each of the schools in Sweetwater County School District #1 -- elementary through high school. Click for Calendar.
Using form, design and color, five artists from Casper, Wyoming present "Western Connections." Barb Barella, Marj Bisiar, Barbara Kuxhausen, Michele McDonald, and Judy Reed will display their individual work in various media which is used to connect to the influences of the west with expressive and artistic interpretations.
We are arranging an exhibit of several local clay artists both traditional potters to sculptors. More information coming soon.
This will be the 11th year that we provide a theme and invite Sweetwater County artists to submit original artwork. The CFAC has the opportunity to host the Edward S. Curtis Photography Traveling Exhibit from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West as part of their 100 year anniversary. Several community activities and events are being planned to celebrate both our local cultural heritage and that of the Native Americans. Entries will be due the last week in September for the exhibit.
30 images from Edward S. Curtis, a photographer who conducted ethnographic research among Native American tribes beginning in 1898. The exhibit has been created by the McCracken Research Library for the Buffalo Bill Memorial Association in celebration of its 100th anniversary. The McCracken Research Library holds a complete set of Curtis’ The North American Indian, a twenty-volume work comprised of Curtis' photographs and research. The entire work is considered one of the great rarities of western Americana.
Workshops are being planned for Monday and Tuesday and a performance on Jan. 31, 2018, at the RSHS Theatre.

Broadway Theater, 7 p.m.
In 1986, Scotsman Donnie Macdonald and Irishman James Keigher came together to perform Irish and Scottish folk music, combining traditional and contemporary styles. The name "Men of Worth" was chosen from the title of a folk song written by the Scottish singer/songwriter Archie Fisher.
Together Men of Worth blend their voices with harmony and support their collection of songs with their varied selection of instruments. They have a very simple approach to their presentation, and in keeping with tradition, remain true to the music and story. Their show is a unique combination of humor, exciting tunes, and soulful, heartfelt ballads.
The CFAC strives to provide a variety of art-related activities including classes and workshops for the community.
A schedule is developed for the fall, winter/spring, and summer and promoted through our webpage, Facebook page, and local newspapers. Please feel free to contact us for more information. We are also interested in finding new individuals who can teach in a number of different art techniques and styles.
Thank you for your interest in the Arts!
