UW Art Museum Hosts Montana Artist's Exhibit
July 10, 2009 — The work of Montana artist Tracy Linder is one of six exhibits currently on display at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
Linder's installation, "Tractor Hides," which features 14 individual "hides" on end and lit from within, will be open through Aug. 22. A gallery walk-through is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Friday, July 17, and an art talk will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 18. Both events are free and open to the public.
Raised on her family's sugar beet farm near Billings, Mont., Linder's work is rooted in the agricultural way of life, drawing on iconic symbols and photography that both honor and memorialize the changing place of the family farm in America.
Linder also will be the artist-in-residence July 14-18 at the museum's Paint Pony Express program, which consists of three weeks of free classes for students ages 4-11.

"Imagine learning from the masters" is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum's programs. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Dr., the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.
