Outdoor Sculpture Being Installed at UW
July 14, 2011 — British land artist Chris Drury is installing a new piece for the University of Wyoming Art Museum's ongoing exhibition "Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational."
The sculpture, titled "Carbon Sink: What Goes Around, Comes Around," is located on the lawn south of Old Main.
Drury will work on the 36-foot diameter sculpture through July 29. The public is encouraged to visit and watch first-hand the process of installing a site-specific sculpture.
For the past 25 years, Drury has explored themes related to the environment and exhibited widely in Britain, Ireland, Japan and the United States.
"Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational" opened in 2008 with 18 outdoor works on campus and around Laramie. Several of the works have been removed or returned to the artists.
Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
