Current Fund Raising Events and Projects:

Big Boots


'These Boots Are Made for Talking' public art project of 2005 generated tremendous interest and prompted the Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation to offer custom made boots to businesses, organizations, and individuals around the nation. 'These Boots' are approximately 8 feet tall and 8 feet from heel to toe. These one-of-a-kind boots can now be embellished to your specifications and design. Call 307.632.3905 for more information.

There are several experienced artists available to meet your design needs. Your design ideas will be evaluated by the artist committee and the appropriate artist will be chosen. The artist can volunteer ideas and suggestions and a workable design can be decided upon. Once the boot is finished it is covered with a clear sealant to preserve its beauty for display inside or outside.


The finished large boots of the initial public art campaign are still very popular and are displayed at

the Cheyenne Depot Museum Complex and by businesses and organizations around the Cheyenne

area. The 'Boots' still generate great enthusiasm and traffic to each of their locations. So, if you missed the earlier campaign you now have an opportunity to purchase a 'one-of-a-kind' boot embellished to

your specifications and design.  Boots will be offered at $6,000 each. Net proceeds will be deposited

into the permanent endowment for the future support and expansion of the Cheyenne Depot Museum

and Complex.












Commemorative Bricks


This is an opportunity to leave your mark on history and support the Cheyenne Depot Museum. The Cheyenne Depot Museum and Foundation are offering the chance for you to have a personally engraved brick placed on the outside entrance way to the Museum.

A donation of $500.00 for the 8" X 8" brick and $250.00 for the 4" X 8" brick can ensure your legacy lives on for present and future generations to marvel and enjoy.
