Final Week to View Recent Acquisitions Exhibition at UW Art Museum
The final day to view the University of Wyoming Art Museum exhibition “New Acquisitions: UW Art Museum Collection” is Saturday, Aug. 23.
On view for the first time, these works represent the museum’s goal to create a comprehensive and significant collection for teaching, research and exhibition.
“The UW Art Museum acquires objects for its collection through donations and purchases, with each object being carefully considered based on existing areas of strength and relevance, and within the context of supporting the University of Wyoming’s academic and cultural missions,” says Wendy Bredehoft, the museum’s curator for education. “As a result, the Art Museum is able to add significant artwork that ranges from the important art historical work of Francis Bacon and Andy Warhol, to contemporary artists such as Bernar Venet and Betty Hahn.”
For more information, call the Art Museum at (307) 766-6622, visit www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum or follow the museum on Facebook or Instagram.
