Saturday, July 9 will be the final day to view the exhibition, From the Scottish Sublime to the American West: Selected Works from the University of Wyoming at the UW Art Museum.
The exhibition compares the romantic sublime landscapes of 18th and 19th century British artists with early 19th century American landscapes. British artists examined the landscape through color and light, creating images in which untamed nature became an aesthetic experience, similar to the Romanticism movement occurring in literature and history. American artists drew upon these grand romantic images in the magnificent landscapes of the American West.
Visitors can also access a free cell phone audio tour by dialing a local number from their cell phone. The cell phone audio tour is a free service offered by the Art Museum and provides in-depth information about the artists and artwork in the exhibition. Handouts are available at the front desk.
This exhibition has been organized by the UW Art Museum in conjunction with The Ninth Annual International Scott Conference, Sir Walter Scott: Sheriff and Outlaw, scheduled at the University of Wyoming from July 5 – 9, 2011.
