Extended Monday Hours Begin Tonight

Binh Danh's "chlorophyll prints," including this one, Son #4 are included in his solo exhibition, which is one of six new fall exhibitions now open at the Art Museum.

The UW Art Museum will begin its extended Monday night hours, beginning tonight. Through the month of November, and between February and April, the Art Museum stays open until 9 pm on Monday nights. These extended hours are helpful for students utilizing exhibitions in their classes but who don't have the time to visit during the day. It's also a great time to visit for those who work during the day but don't want to miss out on any of the new exhibitions. Consider coming to the Art Museum on a Monday evening for something fun, educational, and new! The Museum Store will also be open on Monday evenings until 9 pm.

Six new fall exhibitions are now open at the Art Museum. Included are two exhibitions by international contemporary artists: Anne-Karin Furunes and Binh Danh. Also on view is an exhibition featuring Polaroids, silver gelatin prints and screen prints by Andy Warhol, Western American art from the Erivan and Helga Haub Collection, and an exhibition featuring work from the Art Museum's permanent collection from the Cold War period. The American Heritage Center is presenting an exhibition about Wyoming during World War I. Stop by tonight to check out these new and exciting exhibitions!

The Art Museum is open 10 am - 5 pm, Monday through Friday with extended Monday hours until 9 pm. For more information on exhibitions and programs, please visit the website.
