Work began on Monday for the next sculpture for the University of Wyoming Art Museum, Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational.  Titled Carbon Sink: What Goes Around, Comes Around, the 36 diameter work will be constructed from Wyoming coal and beetle-kill pine.  The artist will be on location for three weeks to create the work.
