Laramie: A Gem City Atlas on View at Coe Library
The exhibition, Laramie: A Gem City Atlas is now on view at Coe Library. The original exhibition was shown at the Art Museum in the spring and is the result of a collaboration with the MFA in Creative Writing Program, eminent writer in residence Rebecca Solnit, and various students, artists, and community members.
The pieces in the exhibition are maps that re-think Laramie and the surrounding area, focusing not solely on geography but also on goods, services, and people. Artwork that was made in response to the topics of the maps are also included.
Coe Library has a special exhibitions space (pictured above) on the 3rd floor that allows them to exhibit and showcase art. Laramie: A Gem City Atlas will be on view through September. The cell phone audio tour is also available and features the mapmakers talking about their work.
