2017 Traffic Signal Cabinet Wraps
Every lighted intersection in Casper has a plain, boring signal cabinet that controls the traffic light. Keep Casper Beautiful wants to transform some of these boxes into public art. The Keep Casper Beautiful Public Art project is calling all Natrona County artists to submit an original work of art. Suggestions for themes include “rebirth,” “western,” “landscape,” “abstract,” and “photography.” Out of the many submissions, four works will be selected. The winning works will then be transformed into vinyl wraps that will cover four traffic signal cabinet boxes downtown. Artists must go to school or reside in Natrona County, Wyoming to apply. Winning artists will receive a $200 fee for their work.

2016 Wyocity Public Art Project
The 2016 Wyocity public Art Project helped explain the new city brand "Wyocity" to visitors and members of the community.
The project consists of a mural located in the downtown parking garage that can be viewed from Center Street and four traffic signal cabinets located at downtown intersections (2nd & Center, Center & Midwest, 2nd and Wolcott, 2nd & Durbin).
Traffic Signal Cabinet Wraps
The Wyocity Public Art project put out a call to all Natrona County artists to interpret Casper’s new Wyocity brand in March, 2016. In May, three works were selected by a panel of judges and the fourth work was selected by public vote at the May Art Walk. The winning works were transformed into vinyl wraps. Take a walk downtown to view all the wraps in person.

The "Fox Den" mural by Tony and Amy Elmore with Fort Atelier, LLC is located on the south western wall of the downtown parking garage (near the public restrooms) on Center Street. The mural was designed in collaboration with Keep Casper Beautiful, the Downtown Development Authority, and stakeholders. The mural committee wanted to communicate how the lines between urban and rural are blurred in Casper. There is a little outside inside every part of Casper.
