Ann Simpson Artmobile

The Ann Simpson Artmobile travels across the 97,914 square miles of Wyoming sharing museum quality artwork with communities that may otherwise have limited access to original art. The exhibitions displayed change every two years and are made up of artwork from the Art Museum's permanent collection. Visits are routinely made to K-12 schools, visitor centers, libraries, senior centers and other community-accessible locations in towns throughout the state. The Artmobile Educator provides programming tailored to site visit needs.

 

Virtual Artmobile Program

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to travel to communities in a traditional sense. In the meantime, we are committed to bringing high quality programming to you through a live virtual format. The exciting part is, through virtual Artmobile visits, we will be able to offer two additional exhibitions on loan from the Regional Touring Exhibition Service (RTEX): Hans Kleiber: The Western Landscape and The Butterfly Series from the Collection of Jordan W. Finkelstein, MD, MSc.

The Artmobile Educator, Sarita Talusani Keller, implements the program, which includes developing a virtual exhibition experience and related educational activities; tailoring the program to meet the needs of each community; and curating exhibitions on a biennial basis. Participants typically work with Artmobile Educator, to explore works of art through a deep looking activity and discussion, followed by an art making activity. Project-specific art materials are provided by the program and can be shipped to you. Contact Sarita for an Artmobile Virtual Program Guide and explore what is possible in your community by emailing artmobile@uwyo.edu
