Dandee Pattee Appointed Historic Bishop Home Director
The Cadoma Foundation, owner of the Historic Bishop Home, announces the appointment of Dandee Pattee as the new Historic Bishop Home Director. Ms. Pattee is a Wyoming native, born in Rawlins and reared in Lander. She studied fine and decorative arts on the eastern seaboard receiving her Master of Fine Arts in ceramics and critical studies. Pattee returned to Casper two years ago to be closer to family and bring her creative talents to the community as a studio potter. Her experience on national and local boards will contribute to bringing new energy and ideas to iconic Bishop Home for all ages to enjoy. She has an avid interest in Wyoming history and is excited to bring her creativity into the continued development of the home through new exhibits displaying its extensive collections of decorative arts as well as invigorating the role of the home in Casper’s community and history.
The Cadoma Foundation is grateful to the Wyoming Community Foundation Casper Area Affiliate for the funding for this position.
The Foundation is also grateful for a generous grant from the Natrona County Recreation Joint Powers Board to refurbish much of the first and second floors of the Bishop Home. (See picture at right)
