Visit Casper launches free mural audio tour
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -Casper’s art scene has been expanding over the past few years. The Casper Mural Project is even working on a new painting currently. In recognition of the variety of outdoor art, Visit Casper has launched an audio tour of some of the many murals around town.
The tour is simple, once you arrive at one of the 10 murals, call the number provided on the mural map, then enter the mural number to hear about the art and artist. Maps for the tour are available online or can be picked up at the Visit Casper Office in downtown Casper.
“It was March 2020 and I was the vice president of the newly founded Casper Mural Project. We planned to fundraise and commission artists to paint a mural in the downtown Casper area. Due to Covid 19 the Casper Mural Project almost came to an end before we even got started,” said the tour at the Better Together Mural.
Visit Casper hopes the tour will be another reason visitors to Wyoming will make a stop in the city. They noted, that art has successfully brought in tourists to other cities in the United States and around the world.
“Something that’s unexpected and different, and really helps tell a different story than people might be used to. It’s another way for us to engage with travelers and introduce the incredible artists that call Casper home to everybody from locals to visitors alike,” said Visit Casper Spokesperson Tia Troy.
Since the tour is through a phone call, it is available 24 hours a day, all year long. The launch features 10 murals, but Visit Casper hopes to expand and add more murals to the tour in the future.
