British land artist Chris Drury is in Laramie, visiting the UW campus to discuss a new site-specific work to be included in the exhibition, Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational. Similarly to artist Margaret Cogswell's visit this week, it is important for Drury to gain an understanding of the campus and town in order to create a work that meshes with its surroundings.

In conjunction with his visit, Drury will present a public Art Talk tonight at 7 pm, at the Art Museum. It is free and open to the public. He will be discussing his previous works and his approach to themes such as culture, the environment, and nature. For more information on Drury and his work, visit his website or blog.

Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational first opened in 2008 and continues to evolve. Two previous site-specific works, by artists Patrick Dougherty and Steven Siegel, have been removed. The Art Museum is excited to be working with Chris Drury to create a new work for the exhibition!
