With the ongoing positive response from the community and the university campus, the Art Museum has extended the loans on many of the sculptures in the outdoor exhibition, Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational. Over the coming years, some works will be removed from the exhibition and new works will be added, creating an evolving program that offers changing configurations of artwork and opportunities to bring new artists into the program.

The first sculpture to be returned to the artist was Deborah Butterfield's Billings which has been on view in the Art Museum's lobby. The second work to be removed will be Steven Siegel's it goes under, the 125-ft long earthworm-like work along the Laramie Greenbelt. Removal is scheduled for mid-September.

For information on the exhibition and links to download the audio tour (use your cell phone to listen to information about each of the works in the exhibition!) and the locator maps of the sculpture in the exhibition and works permanently on view at UW and in Laramie, visit the museum's webpage.
