Everyone practices folk and traditional skills that are passed from one person to another and are shaped out of common experiences. We sing hymns at church, cook a special meal for a birthday, give a bride something blue, carve a pumpkin at Halloween, fiddle a waltz at a dance, recite a poem at the grange hall, or tell a joke at a local cafe. No matter where we are, if we look closely, we find folk arts happening.

Selected Projects
If a project receives funding, the master artist will be responsible for submitting a final report following the project period. Additionally, the Arts Specialist/Folklorist or a representative will visit during the grant period to document the mentorship through photographs, video and/or sound recordings. Materials generated during the site visit will be housed in the Wyoming Folklife Collection and available for educational purposes.
