The Art Museum's Summer Teaching Institute is this week and sessions for Wyoming teachers are in their second day.  This morning, Dance Prof Margaret Wilson and student Brittany Arnold conducted a session of movement in response to Etsuko Ichikawa's installation, NACHI - between the eternal and the ephemeral -.  This summer’s Institute, Figurative Art as Story, Metaphor and Presence, explores the impact of figurative art in communicating ideas, action, culture and more.   In addition to the Art Museum and its Ann Simpson Artmobile exhibition, Go Figure!, other campus resources such as the American Heritage Center and Coe Library will engage participants in original art and strategic discussions to develop new skills in support of arts education in schools and in the community.
