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.
