CASPER, Wyo. — Artists have been chosen to create a large outdoor installation outside of the yet-to-be-built State Office Building in Casper.

“Rob Beishline and Shelley Beishline of Tooza Design in Salt Lake City, Utah have been selected to create an outdoor piece,” the Wyoming Arts Council announced on Friday, Oct. 4.

The installation is titled “Past and Future Frames.”

It “is a large scale, outdoor installation that combines wood and steel frames,” the release states. “The piece references the site of the building, which is the former site of the CNW (Chicago and Northwestern Rail) rail yard and roundhouse, and connects to the industrial themes of the building’s architecture.”

“The piece will be situated outside the building and will connect with Casper’s Rail Trail.”

The State Office Building will be built along West Collins Drive across from the NCHS football field.

Construction is expected to be complete in 2021.
