Spring Semester

Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery


About the Teaching Gallery

The Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery presents four installations, each specific to a course taught during the Spring 2022 semester at the University of Wyoming.  Faculty from a range of academic disciplines select artwork from our permanent collection to support the content and learning goals of their respective classes.

This method of object-based teaching and learning invites inquiry, curiosity, and creative thinking into the students’ educational experience. These skills are tools to prepare our future workforce and leaders, no matter their path, and help enliven the cultural experience in Wyoming.


This semester, we welcome students and faculty from the following courses into the museum:

The artwork selected considers those who face persecution or prosecution based on their beliefs and ritual practices, especially in the USA.
