UW Annual Juried Student Exhibition Winners
More than $19,000 was awarded to the winners of the recent Juried Student Art Exhibition at the University of Wyoming.
The total includes sales of works plus cash prizes for some winning categories.
The exhibition, on display through March 13, provides a venue where students, faculty, and the public can see the strength and quality of artwork created by UW students. It is also an opportunity for the university to recognize and support the artistic work of students through purchase awards. As a result, many of these works will be presented in Old Main, at Coe Library and in various other campus locations.
