With Imagine Learning from the Masters as a guiding principle, the Art Museum’s exhibitions bring the world of art to Wyoming to support the academic mission of the University of Wyoming, provide original resource material for students of all ages, and enhance the cultural life of Wyoming’s citizens and visitors. The Art Museum features an average of 15-17 exhibitions annually. Exhibitions rotate generally on a semester schedule, allowing professors to incorporate original artwork into their curriculum and providing access for students to view and use the exhibitions as a resource for original research and scholarship. The schedule typically combines exhibitions curated from the permanent collection, contemporary art by regional, national and international artists, and art from the American West.
Several exhibitions are scheduled on an ongoing basis. The Annual Juried University of Wyoming Student Exhibition is open yearly to any enrolled student at UW and provides insight to the array of work created by students across campus. Every December, the Laramie and Albany County Children’s Art Exhibition is featured in conjunction with the holiday celebrations, Happy Holidays, Laramie! and the Festival of Trees. A tri-annual UW Art Department Faculty Exhibition showcases artwork by the department’s faculty. Every year, an exhibition on various subjects is also organized by the American Heritage Center, drawn from artifacts and documents in their vast archival collection.
