2013 Gala Date and Theme Announced

The University of Wyoming Art Museum will host its 20th annual Gala ball and fundraiser, “Laissez les bons temps rouler” or, “Let the good times roll,” on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 6 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Yellowstone Ballroom.

Chris and Kathryn Boswell of Cheyenne are chairing this year’s event.  “We are honored to chair the 2013 Gala, and thrilled that new UW President Bob Sternberg and his wife Karin will be joining us at what promises to be a fun evening for a great purpose.  The Art Museum and its outreach programs not only impact the quality of life around Wyoming, the pre-school through college education programs strengthen student problem-solving and critical thinking skills – a great benefit to our future workforce.”

The annual black tie event is presented by the National Advisory Board of the University of Wyoming Art Museum and provides significant program dollars for Art Museum exhibitions, collections, education, and outreach.   The Art Museum is Wyoming’s only academic museum, which presents art from around the world and places art at the center of learning for all ages.

“Laissez les bons temp rouler” is planned as a fun-filled, festive evening of fine food, libations, music, friends, and an expansive silent auction.  Invitations will be mailed in September.  To add your name to the invitation list, please call the Art Museum’s administrative assistant, 307-766-3477.
