About this Speaker

Lorre Hoffman has an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Living on the Cranbrook campus, designed by Eliel Saarinen, is where her love of the interwar period began. Lorre was the director of the sculpture program at the University of Colorado - Denver for ten years. After moving to Lander, Wyoming, in 2000, Lorre founded the Lander Art Center in 2001 and Maker Space 307 in 2012. Lorre has taught art, art history and facilitated Traditional Arapaho Art since 2001, for the Wind River Tribal College. Through her work at the Tribal College, Lorre started a summer youth program on the Arapaho Ranch called the Ranch Safari, a place-based program for youth ages 14 - 24 to participate in service learning, horse culture, mapping cultural sites, and plants on the Arapaho Ranch. In 2019 the Northern Arapaho Tribe engaged Lorre to work on the development of the Arapaho Ranch Field Station, a foundation to develop the mansion and nine other historic structures of the Arapaho Ranch Headquarters built "between the great wars." The Field Station will function on ten acres, within the 400,000-acre footprint of the Arapaho Ranch cattle operations. Lorre continues as director of Maker Space 307 (MS307), with digital output from lasers, 3D printers, CNC routers, and plotters along with an analog woodshop and metals lab. MS307 recently moved to a larger space with atWork, a co-working space for entrepreneurs.
