Glamorous party photographs, behind-the-scenes images of world-famous artists, and close-up shots of performers are some of the more recent generous donations to the University of Wyoming Art Museum. On view through the summer, Seen/Scene features a number of images featuring celebrities from the 1970s through the 2000s by four renowned photographers. Donna Ferrato, Larry Fink, Ralph Gibson, and Walter Iooss create images that provide the viewer access to scenes and proximity to fame that are not generally afforded to the public. Visitors across generations are sure to recognize familiar faces and be drawn into evocative scenes. 

Funded through the generosity of the UW Board of Trustees’ Strategic Projects Funds
