The final day to see fall exhibitions at the University of Wyoming Art Museum is Saturday, Dec. 17.

Closing are “WASTE LAND: A Survey of Works by Brandon Ballengée, 1996-2016”; the “Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery”; and the “Laramie & Albany County Student Art Exhibition.”

“WASTE LAND: A Survey of Works by Brandon Ballengée, 1996-2016” is the first U.S. survey to explore artist-biologist Ballengée’s extensive work. The exhibition presents more than 100 works and new site-specific installations that merge his scientific research with transdisciplinary artworks. Ballengée’s work is inspired by direct observation with amphibians, birds, fish and insect species found in today’s ecosystems and direct experience in scientific laboratory settings.

The “Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery” integrates original art into coursework curriculum and presents exhibitions available to students and the public. Working closely with faculty, courses this semester include “American Indian Studies 2345 -- American Indians and Film”; “Art 3760 -- American Art History”; “Art/History/American Studies/Anthropology 2700 -- Introduction to Museology”; and a first-year seminar course, “Environment and Natural Resources 1101 -- Thinking Like a Mountain,” offered through UW’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.

The annual “Laramie & Albany County Student Art Exhibition” features K-12 art from Laramie and Albany County schools: Beitel Elementary, Centennial Elementary, Harmony Elementary, Indian Paintbrush Elementary, Laramie Montessori, Linford Elementary, Slade Elementary, Spring Creek Elementary, Valley View Elementary, Snowy Range Academy, UW Lab School, Laramie Junior High, Laramie High School, Rock River School, Whiting High School and home schools.
