Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational, the major exhibition of public art installed across Laramie and the University of Wyoming last year, has been extended for an indefinite period of time.  The exhibition, originally planned to end in August 2009, has been positively received, encouraging the University of Wyoming Art Museum, which originated the exhibition, to request loan extensions from many of the artists represented.  

Several works are scheduled to be removed from the exhibition: Deborah Butterfield's Billings, a welded metal, larger than life work in the museum's rotunda will be returned to the artist after August 15.  Steven Siegel's long, linear construction, It Goes Under, installed along the Laramie Greenbelt, is planned for removal the middle of September.

For information on sculpture locations, a Walking/Driving Tour Guide is available on the Art Museum webpage
