The University of Wyoming Art Museum will offer several fun, family-oriented free events for students to celebrate March Art Month, when promoting art and art education is observed nationally.

“Night at the Museum,” the premier event during March Art Month, is Monday, March 6, from 5-7 p.m. It will offer opportunities for families to look at and talk about contemporary art, plus try out free art-making activities. Free dinner will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum curators and teaching artists will be on hand during this family-friendly event.

Family Activity Boxes provide a family-friendly way for families and caregivers with young children to explore the galleries. Families can look at and talk about art, and investigate new ideas and creative processes, in addition to explore and make art. The activity boxes are full of art-making activities for families to do in the galleries during self-guided tours of the exhibitions. Ideas for take-home activities are included in each box. Family Activity Boxes will be available at the visitor services desk in March, Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

The After School Enrichment Program is for students in grades 1-3 to participate in a free after-school program at the UW Art Museum called “Imagine Learning from the Masters.” This program is made possible through a partnership with Albany County School District 1 and uses original art on view in the Art Museum to enhance students’ art, writing, thinking and speaking skills. Enrichment classes meet from 3:30-4:45 p.m., and each school signs up for a seven-visit session. Contact your school administrator or art teacher for participation information.  

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.
