Hosted in partnership with the Worland Rotary Club, the Quick Draw is now in its fourth year. Both groups utilize the funds to improve facilities and opportunities in Wyoming and beyond. The Worland Rotary Club is heavily involved in funding both local and international projects including a cabin at the H Diamond 4H Camp, fitness equipment to improve Riverside Park, playground equipment for the Children’s Resource Center, and partnering with the Evanston Rotary to fund a latrine project in Guatemala. The Rotary Club in Worland also hosts and greatly assists in funding International Exchange Students. The Washakie Museum benefits from the work the artists create in the Quick Draw, and in return supports Wyoming artists through holding shows, sales and art education workshops. Mark 30 McKenna, Robert Martinez, Ray Bower Jr., Linda Sopko, Gayle Barnett, Belinda Daugherty, Sam Angelo, Jim Davis, and Linda Jolley are some of the Quick Draw artists who return to the museum to exhibit their work and lead artist workshops for the community.
