UW Exhibition Depicts Music Festival Culture


October 4, 2010 — Lydia Renneisen's exhibition "Music in the Wind: Revealing the Diversity of Wyoming" can be seen through Friday, Oct. 15, in Gallery 234, Room 004 of the University of Wyoming Union.

A reception for the artist is scheduled Thursday, Oct. 14, at 10 a.m. Renneisen will share her experiences photographing Wyoming culture and diversity that day at 8:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union ballroom. Both events are free and open to the public.

A recent UW graduate with a B.S. degree in rangeland ecology and watershed management and environment and natural resources, Renneisen criss-crossed the state taking pictures of people attending Wyoming music festivals. The project was supported by a Larsh Bristol Memorial Scholarship for photojournalism and a creative activities grant from the Haub School.

"A number of symbols are used to represent Wyoming and are easily recognized by tourists and newcomers; however, natives are more acquainted with scenes that depict our heritage as cowboys and our love-hate relationship with energy development," she says. "Wyoming has a long, rich history of alternative cultural resources. There are many music festivals that have been held around the state for decades, providing a glimpse of the unique, diverse human nature of Wyoming."
