Cast your vote for the Pinedale Gateway Project

The Pinedale Gateway Project committees would like to your help in deciding to move forward with signage on both sides of Pinedale. Please visit the Pinedale Fine Arts Council website at www.pinedalefinearts.com and scroll down on the home page for the survey link.
The Pinedale Gateway Project set out to combine art, signage, and landscaping to create a welcoming entrance into Pinedale to attract visitors to stop, look around and shop our local businesses. The two committees involved (Main Street Pinedale and In|Site:Ex|Site Public Art) wanted something simple that matched the wayfinding signs and reflected some aspect of Pinedale. The committees chose not to focus on big game or bronzes simply because it was too cost prohibitive, with the average bronze costing $130,000 each. The committees secured two grants from the Wyoming Office of Tourism and Wyoming Main Street. Next the committee selected Nationally Acclaimed artist Don Rambadt and his concepts (above). While the committees pursued local artists, they were invited to apply, but none felt able to complete the project.
