Brief Description

The central rotunda of the Capitol contains four niches on the third level that are visible from all levels of the rotunda. The State of Wyoming is seeking four human figure based, cast bronze or carved stone sculptures, one for each niche in the Capitol Rotunda. Each sculpture should be allegorical and representative of the attributes, values, symbolism, and history of the State. The State is interested in selecting one artist or a collaborative team of artists to complete all four sculptures. The commissioned sculptures should be appropriate for the period in which the building was constructed and should be shaped and sized to integrate with the niches as originally designed. The niches are approximately 4’10” wide by 9’6” high. Sculptures will be visible from all floors of the Capitol Building in the Rotunda. All work must be durable, structurally sound, and able to be secured in the niche locations.
