A free public reception to celebrate new summer exhibitions and to welcome attendees of the conference “Our Place in the West … and Beyond: Wyoming at 125” will be held Thursday, June 11, from 6-8 p.m. at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. Refreshments will be available, and music will be provided by local musicians J Shogren Shanghai’d.

Seven new exhibitions are on view at the UW Art Museum for the summer, four of which were organized to coincide with Wyoming’s 125th statehood anniversary celebrations: “South Pass: Wyoming Arts Council Biennial 2015”; “The Modern West: The American Landscape after the Frontier”; “Western Visions: William Gollings, Conrad Schwiering, and Hans Kleiber”; and “Blackfeet Indian Tipis: Design and Legend.”

Additional exhibitions are “Miniature: Small Contemporary Works”; “Gods, Goddesses, and Kings: 17th-19th Century Persian and Indian Miniature Paintings”; and “New Acquisitions: The Art Museum Collection.” For more information about these exhibitions, visit the Art Museum website, www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum.

“Our Place in the West … and Beyond: Wyoming at 125,” sponsored by the Wyoming State Historical Society, UW Libraries, the UW American Heritage Center and others, celebrates the 125th anniversary of Wyoming’s statehood.
