The University of Wyoming Art Museum’s Ann Simpson Artmobile will host a Laramie Jubilee Days Parade costume-making workshop Saturday, July 7, from 10 a.m.-noon at the Art Museum.

As part of the museum’s Family Saturday Workshop, families are invited to make geologically inspired parade costumes, crafts and accessories for the Artmobile’s parade entry, titled “Rock Show.” The free workshop is inspired by this year’s Laramie Jubilee Days Parade’s theme of “Gem City of the Plains.”

Organizers encourage participants to wear costumes made during the workshop in the parade Saturday, July 14.

“The Artmobile is always traveling around the state,” says Sarita Talusani Keller, the UW Art Museum’s Artmobile educator. “This Family Saturday Workshop gives the people of Laramie a rare opportunity to participate with the Artmobile in a community event. It’s also an honor for me to learn about Laramie -- my new home -- as we create and celebrate our town and statehood together.”

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 and Instagram.

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.
