New Acquisitions

June 11 – August 20, 2016

Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery
Hide Painting Bronze

Collecting lies at the heart of the UW Art Museum’s activities, advancing its mission to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret visual art from around the world to challenge, inspire, and educate.  Acquisitions are made possible through gifts from generous donors or purchases with endowment funds designated for collections.  All potential acquisitions are carefully considered based on existing areas of strength and relevance, and within the context of supporting the University of Wyoming’s academic and cultural missions.  As a result the Art Museum is able to add significant artworks that range from important art historical works to new contemporary pieces. New Acquisitions: The Art Museum Collection highlights some important recent acquisitions to the permanent collection in the last year.

  • Funded in part by Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Endowment Funds
