Easterseals, Rooted in Wyoming, and Sage Community Arts have partnered to help create the “Who’s Blue Garden” at 1621 Terra Ave. Some of the sponsors that helped make this vision possible were Tito’s, Knecht Home Center of Sheridan, and the No Name Bar. The development of this garden is crucial as one of Easterseals’ objectives is to help serve adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to become as independent as possible.

Jill Terry, Assistant Vice President of Adult Community Services for Easterseals in Wyoming and Montana, was one of the catalysts that encouraged the partnership with Sage and Rooted in Wyoming to help create the garden. Terry shares the importance of the garden’s construction.

On Wednesday, July 26th, members of Easterseals and Sage Community Arts showed up to the, “Who’s Blue Garden” to paint a mural on the shed with some of Easterseals’ clients. Sage volunteered the supplies and the painting of the mural was instructed by Ashley Cooper and Ellen Goode.

Rachel Mathews-Landis, The Gallery Manager at Sage Community Arts, explains how art has the ability to transcend the canvas.

Terry is extremely eager to have more events like these and extends an offer to other companies that would be willing to partner together in the future.
