The University of Wyoming Art Museum’s Ann Simpson Artmobile, sponsored by Tronox, will host the exhibition “Surrealism: Visions of the Mind” during two community nights, Oct. 11 and Oct. 13, at Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) campus locations.

The Green River community night will take place Tuesday, Oct. 11, from 6-8 p.m., and the Rock Springs community night is scheduled Thursday, Oct. 13, from 6-8 p.m.

K-12 students will attend deep-looking and art-making sessions with Erica Ramsey, Artmobile educator, throughout the week. WWCC professors will use the Artmobile’s exhibition of original museum-quality art for their college courses.

“Sweetwater County citizens are invited to come see the Artmobile exhibition and play a traditional surrealist game with family and friends while enjoying light refreshments provided by Tronox,” Ramsey says.

“Surrealism: Visions of the Mind” features the work of 15 different artists, representing the international significance of this 20th century artistic movement.

“Western Wyoming Community College is honored to host this event,” says WWCC President Karla Leach. “Each moment that we share the arts with our children and our community opens eyes to the creative spirit of the human mind.”

The series of events is presented in partnership with WWCC and is generously sponsored by Tronox.

The Ann Simpson Artmobile program is a free core outreach program for the UW Art Museum, traveling museum-quality original artwork statewide for the past 35 years. On average, the Artmobile travels two to three weeks out of every month to Wyoming communities that have little or no access to original art. The Artmobile reaches out to people of all ages, backgrounds and developmental abilities with special focus given to Wyoming’s K-12 schools and underserved populations including seniors, veterans and individuals with special needs.

For more information, call the Art Museum at (307) 766-6622, visit the website at www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum, or follow the museum on Facebook.

Through its “Museum as Classroom” approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 7 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
