UW Art Museum Videos on YouTube

The University of Wyoming Art Museum now has four videos available on YouTube. The Art Museum has been working with UW Television to create a series of filmed interviews with contemporary artists. When the Art Museum hosts an exhibition, often times the artist comes to Laramie to either assist with installation of the exhibition, or for various public programs, like an Art Talk or to work with students.

Capturing the words, voices, and ideas of these contemporary artists is an important aspect in developing a fuller understanding and appreciation of their work. Currently available on YouTube are interviews with James Surls, Kwang-Young Chun, Peter Sarkisian, and the most recent addition, Harold Garde.

To view any of these videos, visit the UW Art Museum's channel on YouTube.
