Final Week to See Two Exhibitions

Bill Schenck (American, b. 1947), An Ancient Place, 1999, oil on canvas, 40 x 50 inches, Erivan and Helga Haub Family Collection of Western Art

This is the final week to see two exhibitions at the UW Art Museum. People of the West - A Collector's Vision, Selections from the Erivan and Helga Haub Collection features a range of paintings, sculptures, and prints from the Haub's collection of Western American art. Ranging from Taos Society of Artists to contemporary artists, this exhibition portrays the various people and cultures of the West.

Iconic Mass Culture: Andy Warhol's Portraits is an exhibition of Polaroid and silver gelatin prints that were recently gifted to the Art Museum from the Andy Warhol Foundation's Photographic Legacy Program. In addition to these mediums, four screen prints are also on view. These three different media offer insight into Warhol's creative process.

The final day to see both of these exhibitions is this Saturday, November 13. Admission is always free. The Art Museum is open 10 am - 5 pm, with extended hours until 9 pm on Mondays. For more information, please call the museum at 307.766.6622 or visit the website.
