Pronghorn

Located at the corner of Elk and North Front Streets, this mural is based on a Wyoming animal landscape - prairie themed and giving a working together theme of the many nationalities in Rock Springs.  


This wildlife scene uses the animals as representatives for a larger vision about working together and building a community.  The artist has made every animal in this to have the coats and colors of the pronghorn. 


The coyote draws tension and visual lines to the rabbit, while the bird sees all, and the rabbit glances down to the snake that the coyote does not see, creating a triangle and story to follow. The historic awning on the building was the center point to let the landscape build up and become almost a pillar that dictated the characters around it.

The Plateau

by ARCY

The Plateau is located on Pla Mor Lanes Bowling alley at 327 C Street


Uphill struggles to success will always be evident and a true artist will need to be prepared to face these struggles along the way. The Plateau explores an artist’s nature to recognize their goals but never become limited by their concerns. To plateau may be necessary for conceptualization, but just like large birds of prey, the artist must persevere with confidence in the endeavors of their art.
