Enjoy the “Howdy” Wyoming Postcard art exhibit at Powell’s Library during October and November. It is a traveling exhibit that considers the postcard as a communication device and advertiser of Wyoming’s natural and cultural landscape. Color, and black and white, images illustrate how postcards have promoted Wyoming as a “vacation dreamland” and a “wonderland of the West.” This exhibit comes from the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne.
