Placing Art at the Center of Learning

The University of Wyoming Art Museum presents and collects world-class art and objects by regional, national and international artists, and art from the American West.

As an academic museum and a leader in the arts, the University of Wyoming Art Museum concentrates on furthering programs that engage students and visitors in discussions that broaden an understanding of diverse perspectives, viewpoints, and cultures.

Through its Museum as Classroom approach, the University of Wyoming Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages, supports the academic mission of the University, assists in preparing our future workforce with essential skills, and enhances the cultural life of Wyoming’s citizens and visitors.




  • Pat Guthrie Special Exhibition Teaching Gallery

    On View through May 14, 2022

    The Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery presents four installations, each specific to a course taught during the Spring 2022 semester at the University of Wyoming.  Faculty from a range of academic disciplines select artwork from our permanent collection to support the content and learning goals of their respective classes.

    This method of object-based teaching and learning invites inquiry, curiosity, and creative thinking into the students’ educational experience. These skills are tools to prepare our future workforce and leaders, no matter their path, and help enliven the cultural experience in Wyoming.

  • Anne Samat: Weavings of Love

    On view through August 27, 2022

    Malaysian artist Anne Samat (b. 1973) creates brilliantly colorful totemic wall sculptures using humble everyday materials. Her work is deeply informed by Malaysian culture, but with a contemporary sensibility for color, texture, and form.

  • Contemporary in Black + White: Selections from the Art Museum Collection

    On View Through June 4, 2022

    In the realm of contemporary art, achromatic does not equate to insignificant. Selected from the museum’s permanent collection, these contemporary works are brought together by the common theme of color or lack thereof. Without the element of color, ideas must be conveyed only by line, shape, value, texture, and composition. The intentionality of casting aside the color spectrum and focusing on the visual power of black and white results in surprising and thought-provoking imagery.
