The Art Museum invites faculty to use the collection as a teaching resource and encourages students to study original artwork. The curator of collections assists in creating projects that correlate to all areas of study. Students are welcome to use the collection for individual research projects and internships. To get started, please review the guidelines for using Art Museum resources and e-mail curator of collections, Nicole Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas, requests or the objective of your course and she will be happy to work with you to find works in the collection that fit your criteria.

The University of Wyoming offers a minor in museum studies that introduces undergraduate students to the history, theory and practice of museum and collections. Courses encourage interdisciplinary thinking about the theoretical, historical and contemporary roles of museums and curatorial institutions in society. Through the minor, students learn about the preservation, collection, interpretation and exhibition of art, anthropological, historical and scientific materials for the public audience.
Students majoring in art, anthropology, history or any other major in the humanities, sciences, education or business can enhance their area of specialization with the museum studies minor. For more information please visit the museum studies webpage.
Outside scholars, as well as UW faculty and students are invited to utilize the Art Museum collections and related materials for independent research. The curatorial staff is happy to assist and facilitate access to specific information or artworks. Please send a completed research request form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the curatorial staff will respond within two weeks.
If you need assistance with how to research an artist or artwork that is not in the Art Museum collection or with finding an appraiser or conservator, complete the research request form and e-mail it to email@example.com and a member of the Art Museum staff will provide you with a reference list. Please note that the Art Museum is unable to provide appraisals, conservation assistance or critiques of artwork.
