UW Art Museum Seeks New Ann Simpson Artmobile Curator

A student works on an art project using the Artmobile printing press.

The University of Wyoming Art Museum (UAM) is looking for a new Ann Simpson Artmobile Curator. As a key outreach program for the art museum, the artmobile curator travels with an exhibition of original artwork to every corner of Wyoming. As an important member of the UAM’s education team, the artmobile curator achieves the museum’s mission by implementing field programs that align with in-house education programs supporting inquiry-based learning.

We are looking for an energetic, creative and organized individual who enjoys meeting and working with people all across Wyoming in diverse settings. An art and/or art education background with printmaking knowledge is required. The curator regularly works with Wyoming’s K-12 teachers to develop programs that support their classroom goals and standards, as well as with community organizations, senior citizens groups, pre-schools and more.

Excellent driving skills are a must since the curator drives many miles in the artmobile van each year to some of Wyoming’s most remote communities. The position is 30 hrs. per week and is benefited.

A full job description can be found online. It is an academic position listed under the UW Human Resources Employment site, titled “Assistant Research Scientist, Ann Simpson Artmobile Curator, position # 6082. Or click on the following url to go directly to the listing: For more information contact Wendy Bredehoft, Education Curator, 307.766.3496 or

Art Museum and Artmobile Featured in UWYO Magazine

The fine and performing arts are the focus of the January 2012 issue of UWYO Magazine, available now in print and online. Featured alongside such great programs at UW such as Cultural Programs and the Music, Theater, and Dance Departments, the Art Museum is excited to be featured. Images and information from past exhibitions and installations are highlighted, as are the goals and motivations of the Art Museum. Discussions with key personnel showcase the accomplishments of the exhibitions, education, and outreach of the museum.

Also included in this issue is the Ann Simpson Artmobile. UWYO Magazine followed Artmobile curator Beth Remington on a recent visit to Saratoga, where students had the opportunity to view original artwork and then make their own art project inspired by what they saw.

Check out the online version of the magazine here for some great behind-the-scenes images and a look at what we do here at the Art Museum!

Looking Ahead to the New Year

The new year is upon us and while the Art Museum galleries are closed this month to visitors, the staff is hard at work getting ready for 5 all new exhibitions! We are excited to present a range of work, including two photography exhibitions, Native American baskets, constructed mixed media works, and the always popular, Juried UW Student Exhibition. During the month of January, staff will be busy de-installing the exhibitions from this past fall, packing them up, and shipping them out. Then it's time for gallery maintenance and repairs and the installation of all new work.

You can check out the link here to our website, which has more information and images about what exhibitions are opening this spring, and throughout the year. In addition to presenting new and varied work, we are also looking ahead to the opening of the new Resource Room, which will be a great research and meeting area for faculty, students, and other researchers. Books, catalogs, artist files, and computer workstations in the Resource Room will be a great addition to the Art Museum as we expand our connections to the academic community and other cultural institutions.

We look forward to seeing all of our returning and new visitors in the year ahead!
