Tonight at the Art Museum - a Focus on Faculty

Two public programs tonight at the Art Museum highlight some of the work that's happening on campus by various faculty members. First, at 6 pm, is a Gallery Walk Through with UW Art Department faculty, whose work is currently on exhibition in the museum. Those faculty members who teach drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, graphic design, or foundations classes, will have the opportunity to talk about their own work and what inspires them. This informal gathering is a great time to hear directly from the artists and ask questions!

Following the Gallery Walk Through is a second public program that begins at 7 pm, called 20:20. With a broader focus, this program is a chance for both UW and LCCC faculty to showcase their work - whether it's art, research, writing, music, or dance - in a brief presentation. Presenters are given 20 slides, each of which is only shown for 20 seconds. This fast-paced format keeps the evening lively and informative. Please join us for 20:20, which will feature presentations by faculty members from the art department, civil and architectural engineering, photography, geology, and a range of other interesting topics.

For more information about public programs or exhibitions, please call the Art Museum at 307.766.6622. All programs are free and open to the public.
