Several naming opportunities exist within the Dick and Marialyce Tobin Visual Arts Center at Casper College. The money raised through these sponsorships will create further educational opportunities for Casper College students.

The naming opportunities include the art storage room and a classroom on the first floor, and the Mac Lab, a 2D foundation classroom, a drawing studio, a print-making studio, a critique room, and five offices on the second floor.

Named areas on the first floor include the Cundy Family Critique Room, the Randy Stutheit Wood Shop, the Jorgensen Family Sculpture Studio, the Henry J. and Felicia Terry Kennah Ceramics Studio, the Casper College Alumni Association Art Gallery, and the Susie McMurry Lobby.

Named areas on the second floor include the Frank D. Neville Photography Suite, Sponsored by Williams, Porter, Day, and Neville, P.C., the Jim and Susan Anderson Painting Studio, and the Bob Barnard Metal Fabrication Suite.

The front plaza of the Tobin Visual Arts Center is named the Hilltop Bank Plaza.

“The building was named for Dick and Marialyce Tobin from donations they made to the foundation as well as for their 30 years of service to the college with Marialyce on the foundation board and Dick on the board of trustees,” noted Denise Bressler, Casper College Foundation executive director.

“The Tobin Visual Arts Center is not only the home for all of our students majoring in or taking art classes but also for many other activities,” said Bressler. Activities include the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute — OLLI at Casper College, KEY Camp, artist talks and workshops, and continuing education courses. “The building will also host special sessions for the Wyoming Art Educators Association and partnerships with many local organizations,” added Bressler.

The new center’s square footage is nearly double that of the previous art building, the Goodstein Visual Arts Center, which opened 45 years ago before the start of the fall 1977 semester.

The Dick and Marialyce Tobin Visual Arts Center opened to students and the public in mid-October 2022, and a grand opening was held in May 2023.
