SHERIDAN — Wyoming artist Gerald Anthony Shippen of Cody received the Governor’s Choice Award in the 2022 Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition for his painted bronze sculpture, “The Indian’s Pony.” The award was presented at the Exhibition reception in the Wyoming State Capitol Feb. 24.

The award-winning sculpture was described by the late Peter Hassrick, former director of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, as a “signature work of art celebrating the Native people of the Northern Plains…[that] embraces modern perceptions, historical themes and time-honored techniques.”
