New Cell Phone Audio Tour for Scottish Sublime Exhibition

Searly S. Willis (Scotland), Untitled (Hunting Scene), 1874, oil on canvas, 30 x 50-1/4 inches, gift of William J. Thulin, University of Wyoming Art Museum Collection, 1971.4

A new cell phone audio tour for the exhibition, From the Scottish Sublime to the American West: Selections from the University of Wyoming is now available. The cell phone audio tour is a free service offered by the Art Museum and is accessible by dialing a local number from your cell phone. Handouts are available at the front desk.

This audio tour provides information about the different artistic movements that are represented in the exhibition, including British sublime landscape painting and American styles such as the Hudson River School artists. Information about specific artists and paintings is also available.

Because this exhibition was organized in conjunction with the 9th International Scott Conference, which begins today and is being held at UW, the audio tour is punctuated with information and quotes from Sir Walter Scott's writing. A special thanks to Peter Parolin, department head of the UW Department of English, for recording this tour!

For more information about this exhibition or the cell phone audio tour, please call 307.766.6622.
