  • The Black 14

    On View through August 6, 2022

    The year was 1969, a time of demonstrations on college campuses across the United States for civil rights and to end the war in Vietnam. In October of that year, the University of Wyoming’s 14 Black football players wanted to take a stand against the Mormon Church’s policy of barring Black men from entering the priesthood by wearing black armbands during a home game against Brigham Young University, an institution run by the Mormon Church. The players, now known as the Black 14, were suspended from the team by Coach Lloyd Eaton, sparking debate and upheaval across the state and the country.  

  • 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.

  • Vizualizing Kinship

    On View Through August 27, 2022

    Kinship is understood as a state of relatedness; kin are defined as people of common ancestry. Kinship can also refer to the broader web of social relationships we construct through marriage and group belonging. For this exhibition, curator Michelle Sunset partnered with Dr. Alexandra Kelly, Associate Professor of History and Anthropology and Director of the Anthropology Museum to mine the Art Museum’s collection for objects that allow a deeper exploration of “kinship.”
