New Artist Interviews on YouTube

The Art Museum has been working with UWTV on an ongoing project to film interviews with visiting artists, collectors, and even curators.  If you've been to the Art Museum in the past year and had a favorite exhibition, or if there was one you wanted to see and just never made it to the museum, be sure to stop by our YouTube page and check out the interviews that are posted. 

Here at the Art Museum, we think that one of the best ways to learn more about art is to hear directly from the artists!  These interviews present a range of information and highlight artists and their exhibitions from small metalwork to stage design, and site-specific installations that were created just for the Art Museum.  Also included are interviews with collectors whose work was on view in some great exhibitions. 

These interviews can also be a great resource if you're a teacher or professor looking to demonstrate how contemporary artists are using certain materials, or if you're an artist looking for inspiration or motivation!

Watch one or watch them all, but be sure to take a look and let us know in the comments what you think!

This program was funded by the Wyoming Arts Council through the National Endowment for the Arts and the Wyoming State Legislature, and UW Art Museum Gala Funds.
