FEATURED

  • Micrographia

    MICROGRAPHIA

    ON VIEW AUG. 26, 2023 - MARCH 16, 2024

    UWAM is excited to be collaborating with the Microbestiary, a grant-funded art and science outreach project at UW that engages the public in microbiology through art, to host artwork created during the inaugural Microbestiary Artist Residency (MAR). This exhibition is a collective exploration of the in/visible forces and organisms that shape the world we know.  Microbes live around us and within us—our interactions with them are a matter of life and death. Yet, regarding issues such as biodiversity, public awareness centers very heavily on species that are visible to the naked eye. Through these artistic responses to the field of microbiological research, we are highlighting the charismatic world that these creatures inhabit.  

  • The New West

    THE NEW WEST: UWAM AT FIFTY

    ON VIEW JULY 8, 2023 - MAY 18, 2024

    To commemorate the University of Wyoming Art Museum’s 50th anniversary since its humble beginnings as a corkboard in the Fine Arts Department, the museum presents an exhibition exploring its place in the American West, a region imbued with the emotional subtexts of freedom, independence, and wilderness. The museum re-presents “traditional” narratives to highlight Indigenous voices, place landscapes in historical perspective, and examine the history of collecting the art of the American West. Using the permanent collection, guest curator Robert Martinez collaborated with Art Museum curators to develop an exhibition that he says, “challenges the visitor to change their mindset and note whose perspective is missing. Whose story is not being told and why.”
