In 2008, Wyoming's second state-endowed professorship, funded by the Excellence in Higher Education Endowment through the Wyoming State Legislature, was awarded to UW's three Fine Arts departments - Art, Music, and Theatre & Dance - on a rotating basis. UW Theatre & Dance hosted Bill Bowers, UW's first Eminent-Artist-in-Residence in 2008-2009, and the renowned Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in 2011-2012.
Each season the endowment also supports our Guest Artists Series. We have hosted more than two dozen industry professionals, including top-notch talent in the performance, technical and design, and playwriting fields to lead workshops and master classes and to perform. Artists have included, among others, LA actor Craig Anton; acclaimed choreographer Peter Pucci; puppeteer and Theatre-for-Young Audiences expert Johanna Smith; movement and physical theatre specialist Paul Kalina, and fight choreographer Charlie Oates.
Visiting guest artists have provided stellar training and networking opportunities for our students and also learning and performance opportunities for the community at large.
