The UW Art Museum is proud to host the exhibition, Women in Wyoming: Portraits and Interviews of Women Who Shape the West, by Wyoming artist Lindsay Linton Buk. The exhibit features large-scale portraits, an audio soundscape, as well as interactive storytelling components which engage the audience to tell stories about inspiring women in their own lives. Over the course of the production, Lindsay’s traveled more than 15,000 miles, developed 600 rolls of medium-format film, and recorded 3,000 minutes of audio interview footage to illuminate the strength and spirit of Wyoming women and girls. The resulting exhibition is a powerful collective of contemporary female role models -- from artists to politicians, ranchers, authors, businesswomen and community stewards. Their 22 stories celebrate the achievements, power, and learned wisdom of Wyoming women today.
