Laramie artist and University of Wyoming graduate Dan Toro has begun work on a mural on the Source Gas building located at Third and Custer streets in downtown Laramie.

Titled “Growth,” it is the second mural of the Laramie Mural Project 2012. It will incorporate images of large trees with deep roots as a representation of community accomplishments. Smaller trees without deep roots appear as wind-blown, broken twigs.

“The image of trees with deep roots is symbolic of the community and, when working together, how much can be accomplished,” Toro said in a release. “When one moves away from the community, little gets done.”

Toro is painting the mural on location through today. The public is welcome to stop by to watch him work.

The Laramie Mural Project is a partnership among local businesses and artists, the Laramie Main Street Alliance and the UW Art Museum.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
