The Office of the President and the UW Foundation have supplied funding for 50 students to attend the UW Art Museum Symposium “Public Art and Community: Inspiration and Reflection,” April 2-4. Students will have the opportunity to hear presentations from state legislators, internationally recognized artists and distinguished UW professors. Lunch on both days, and invitations to the opening and closing receptions are included. This opportunity is open to students of any class level and from any college, but may be of particular interest to students in American Studies, the Arts, Public Policy, Public Administration, Law, Education, Philosophy, Creative Writing, Business and Engineering.

Students must attend symposium sessions on Friday and Saturday. Interested students should submit their name, college and class level, email and phone number, and a 50-100 word statement that answers the question, “How would attending this event contribute to your professional goals?” Submissions and inquiries can be emailed to Rachel Miller at The deadline for submissions is noon on Monday, March 30.

For more information on the symposium, please visit or call 307-766-6621.
