The Art Museum provides in-depth learning opportunities for university and college classes exploring ways to use original art, artists and scholars as resources for research. The education team works with faculty to design classes and tours that are tailored to meet the needs of individual groups. Faculty are also encouraged to develop an ongoing partnership with the museum in order to access additional resources and support for classroom goals. To set up a tour for your university or college class or to discuss partnership opportunities, contact Wendy Bredehoft, Curator of Education, at (307) 766-3496 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Art Museum accepts and reviews applications for internships on a rotating basis. Internships are available to undergraduate seniors and graduate students in all areas of study at the University of Wyoming and Laramie County Community College. The Art Museum works to match individual students’ interests and areas of study with identified programmatic needs such as collections, education, marketing or administration. Students are eligible to receive academic credit for their work with approval from their department. All internships are unpaid.
Internship Opportunity: The UW Art Museum is seeking an intern to work in the new Resource Room. Duties include cataloging and filing books, art magazines, and other publications, processing incoming donations, and updating artist files. The internship requires excellent organizational skills and attention to detail. Experience using a Mac is preferred but not necessary. The internship is unpaid, but students may be able to earn credit through their sponsoring department. This is a great opportunity for students in library sciences, museum studies, art, or the humanities.
Applications must include the completed application form, a current resume and a letter of interest. E-mail completed applications to Nicole Crawford, Curator of Collections, at email@example.com with “UW Art Museum Internship Program” in the subject line. Applications may also be mailed to:

The University of Wyoming offers a minor in museum studies that introduces undergraduate students to the history, theory and practice of museums 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.
