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.
