Last Chance to See Linda Fleming's Large-Scale Sculptures

Linda Fleming's laser-cut steel sculpture, Refugium, is located to the west of the Classroom Building.  It is scheduled for de-installation next week.

This is the final week to see two large-scale sculptures on the University of Wyoming Campus.  After being on long-term loan to the UW Art Museum, two sculptures by California artist Linda Fleming will be de-installed beginning on April 8.

Refugium was installed on the west side of the classroom building in 2008 for the exhibition, Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational.  The exhibition brought large-scale works to campus and around the Laramie community.

Fumerole is on view on the sculpture terrace at the UW Art Museum.  It was installed in conjunction with Fleming’s 2012 solo exhibition, Linda Fleming: Modeling the Universe.

Fleming's work explores themes of science, nature, and the human place in the world.  Her large, laser-cut steel works invite the viewer to walk around, and sometimes inside, the sculpture.  Fleming maintains studios in the San Francisco Bay area, Nevada, and Colorado.  She has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and teaches at the California College of the Arts.
