April 4, 2013 — After being on long-term loan to the University of Wyoming Art Museum, two large-scale sculptures by California artist Linda Fleming will be de-installed beginning Monday, April 8.
“Refugium” was installed in 2008 on the west side of the Classroom Building for the exhibition, titled “Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational.” The exhibition brought large-scale works to campus and around the Laramie community.
“Fumerole” is on view on the art museum’s sculpture terrace. It was installed for Fleming’s 2012 solo exhibition, titled “Linda Fleming: Modeling the Universe.”
Fleming’s work explores themes of science, nature and the human place in the world. Her large, laser-cut steel works invite viewers to walk around and, sometimes, enter the sculpture. Fleming maintains studios in the San Francisco Bay area, Nevada and Colorado. She has exhibited extensively across the United States and teaches at the California College of the Arts.
“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 Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 9 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
Linda Fleming’s “Refugium” is located west of the UW Classroom Building. (Linda Fleming)
