Siegel Sculpture Takes Shape on the Laramie Greenbelt

Steven Siegel, assisted by UW Art Museum chief preparator Sterling Smith and a number of student interns, has established the basic structure of his site-specific work for Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational. After 3 days of working in the museum's woodshop and on site, the sculpture is beginning to emerge from the soggy banks of the Laramie River. Tomorrow, red mulch from the Cheyenne Recycling Center will be delivered. Additional structural components will be added as the work stretches beyond its current 75-ft length.

Working with Steven is a delight and being part of the creative process for the sculptural work for Laramie is a lot of fun. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Sarah at the museum, 766-6621. Volunteers for the coming weeks (June 9 - 20) to assist in completing the work and will also be needed for the 3 weeks in July when Patrick Dougherty will be in town to create a work from saplings.
