Gallery Walk Through: Award Winning Students

Join us tonight at the Art Museum for a Gallery Walk Through with students who have won awards for their work in the 37th Annual Juried University of Wyoming Student Exhibition. This public program begins at 7 pm and is free and open to the public. Each award winning student will be given a few minutes to talk about their work on view, as well as what they're currently working on in the studio. This is a great professional opportunity for students to practice speaking in public about their artwork, and for the public to learn more about the creativity of students from around campus!

Tonight is also the first night of our extended Monday night hours. Beginning tonight through the end of April, the Art Museum will be open until 9 pm on Monday evenings, providing more opportunities to visit.

For more information about exhibitions, hours, or public programs, please visit our website or call 307.766.6622.
