Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational



Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational originated in 2008 as a temporary outdoor exhibition in response to the University of Wyoming Art Museum’s extended closure for renovations and to the increasing interest on campus and in our community for public art. Originally, seventeen sculptures by sixteen artists were on view. By special invitation, the artists of Ark Regional Services created an outdoor work for the Creative Arts Center.
 
Today, several of the original works and one new work remain on view:  

  • Ursula von Rydingsvard, Doolin Doolin; Art Museum terrace
  • Jesús Moroles, Eclipse; Art Museum terrace
  • Gerri Sayler, Interstitial; Centennial Complex lobby
  • Wanzin Zhang, Waiting; Old Main room 206
  • Linda Fleming, Refugium; Classroom Building terrace
  • Stan Dolega, Vedauwoo Modernized; Optimist Park
  • Artists of Ark, A Tribute to Alexander Calder; 1174 N. Fourth St.
  • Robert Russin, First Steps; Undine Park
  • John Kearney, Alligator; Fourth and Garfield Streets
