British land artist Chris Drury is in Laramie, visiting the UW campus to discuss a new site-specific work to be included in the exhibition, Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational. Similarly to artist Margaret Cogswell's visit this week, it is important for Drury to gain an understanding of the campus and town in order to create a work that meshes with its surroundings.
In conjunction with his visit, Drury will present a public Art Talk tonight at 7 pm, at the Art Museum. It is free and open to the public. He will be discussing his previous works and his approach to themes such as culture, the environment, and nature. For more information on Drury and his work, visit his website or blog.
Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational first opened in 2008 and continues to evolve. Two previous site-specific works, by artists Patrick Dougherty and Steven Siegel, have been removed. The Art Museum is excited to be working with Chris Drury to create a new work for the exhibition!

To create buzz about the exhibit’s opening, Furunes visited the gallery for a public lecture and walk-through, which helped students and other visitors make a mental connection between the audio tour and the artist.
“We’ve done 14 Guide by Cell tours in the past, but this is one of our top two most attended,” said Rachel Miller, Assistant Curator at the UW Art Museum. “It’s a really cool feature, and people love that they can use their cell phones to hear directly from the artist!”
Dial (307) 200-0040 from any phone and follow the prompts to hear from Furunes.
