Annual Guest Artist Series

Learn about current Guest Artist Events

In 2008, Wyoming's second state-endowed professorship, the Eminent-Artist-in-Residence, was funded by the Excellence in Higher Education Endowment through the Wyoming State Legislature, and awarded to UW's three Fine Arts departments - Art, Music, and Theatre & Dance - on a rotating basis.

Each season, the endowment also supports our Guest Artist Series.  Over the past seven years, we have hosted dozens of industry professionals, including top-notch talent in the performance, technical and design, and playwriting fields to lead workshops, masterclasses and perform. 

Former Guest Artists have included, among others:

  • Pablo Ruvalcaba of the Limon Dance Company,
  • Famed scenic designer John Ezell;
  • Accomplished dancer and Professor of Comparative Cognition Nicky Clayton and creative writer, fine artist, performer and teacher Clive Owen
  • LA-based 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.
