Our History

Formally established in 1964 the Cody Country Art League is located in the Visitor’s Center on Sheridan Avenue in downtown Cody, Wyoming. The structure is the original Buffalo Bill Museum and is registered on the National Register of Historic Places.

The founding members established the art league in order to promote the artistic endeavor among local artists by encouraging exhibits, displays and sales; fostering art education among artists, and the support of art classes to all artists in the community, which was the heart of the movement.

The Cody Country Art League is a culmination of the “impossible dream realized through the benevolence of a progressive community” and particularly by our founding members, which include Mr. & Mrs. Paul Stock, Dr. Harold McCracken, the Nielsen family, Mrs. Doris May and the Coe Family, to name just a few. 

Today’s Cody Country Art League is about and dedicated to continuing and furthering their dream.

Sometimes We Do The Strangest Things

A Different Kind of Workshop - well there is an "art" to tearing down walls and ripping up floors.

Here we see some of the "League of Extraordinary Members" taking a break from creating new space for our classroom.  The League consists of Board members, spouses and very special friends and was under the capable leadership of our "instructor" Ryan from T.L. Quick Construction.
