A new multimedia exhibition by Japanese-American artist Etsuko Ichikawa, "NACHI - between the eternal and the ephemeral," opens with a gallery walk-through at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.

A public reception and a brief dance performance by students within the UW Department of Theatre and Dance will follow at 6 p.m.

The exhibition features a series of large glass pyrographs (drawings created with molten glass on paper), thousands of suspended silk threads, audio and a video projection that creates a contemplative environment within the gallery setting.

Ichikawa says the exhibition was inspired by the Kumano waterfall, Nachi, which has been a destination for worship and purification in Japan for 1,200 years. Ichikawa's installation will create a space for museum visitors to experience silence and reflection.

"Imagine learning from the masters" is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum's programs. 

Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays. Admission is free.
