Mayoral Candidate Meet & Greet

An Open House to meet Amy Kania, Basin Mayoral Candidate, will be held Thursday, October 14 from 4-7 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the Basin City Arts Center.

Amy and her family have lived in Basin since 2004. They chose to move to Basin for the quality of life. Amy's favorite quote gives great insight into how she views her role as a mayoral candidate:

Mindfulness must be engaged.
Once there is seeing, there must be acting.
Otherwise, what is the use of seeing?
~ Thich Nhat Hahn, Budhist monk

To learn more about Amy and her plans for Basin, come to the Meet & Greet at the Arts Center Thursday evening. You can also find her on
facebook at Amy Kania For Mayor or at her blog.

Prickly Pair in Concert

Prickly Pair and the Cactus Chorale will be in concert at 7 p.m. Friday, October 15, at the Basin City Arts Center.

Prickly Pair, made up of Les and Locke Hamilton and bass player, Norman Winter, call their music 'cutting edge Western', according to a press release. That may sound humorous but that's exactly what it is! Their unique and refreshing style blends old time fiddle, cowboy tunes, vintage Western such as Sons of the Pioneers' tunes with yodeling, and folk tunes that trace cowboy music to its Celtic roots. They also perform original and contemporary material that perpetuates this American art form.

Tickets will be available at the door starting at 6:30 p.m. Prices are $10 for Adults, $7 for Seniors, and $5 for children 12 and under.

The Basin City Arts Center, located at 117 S. 4th Street in Basin, Wyoming, is a nonprofit organization supporting and developing the arts in the Big Horn Basin. This project is funded in part by the generous support from Overland Express in Basin & Greybull and Pepsi Corporation in Worland, and by a grant from Wyoming Arts Council through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts who believes a great nation deserves great art.

For more information on this event contact Jennifer Miller at 568-9346.
