The University of Wyoming Art Museum’s Ann Simpson Artmobile will tour the Park County Library System in Cody, Meeteetse and Powell with a new exhibition, “Art and Architecture: Metaphors in Space,” July 17-21.

The exhibition, available for scheduling 2017-19, invites viewers to investigate the relationship between art and architecture. Images in the exhibition were curated to enable discussions of the ways architectural spaces impact our institutions, communities, emotional and physical well-being, and how artists interpret these impacts. The exhibition features classical renderings, conceptual interpretations and expressive portrayals of the architecture that shapes our lives. 

Guided deep-looking sessions and art-making activities will be offered by Artmobile Educator Erica Ramsey at each location. More information on specific program schedules can be found by contacting a Park County library in Cody, Meeteetse or Powell.

“The Ann Simpson Artmobile has a rich history of visiting Park County, which makes the library tour the perfect opportunity to debut the 2017-19 exhibition, ‘Art and Architecture: Metaphors in Space,’” Ramsey says.

The exhibition and art-making activities are free and open to the public. The Powell and Cody libraries will have signup sheets available to guarantee participation spots.

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.
