Eileen Roscina: In the Yards

July 2 – September 17, 2022


The UW Art Museum hosts Denver-based filmmaker Eileen Roscina’s In the Yards in the Wyoming Gallery, a dedicated film space with comfortable seating. This short portrait film of the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO is the culmination of Roscina’s artist residency at the stockyards in 2019. The film arc follows the seasonal rhythm of the stockyards from its dormant time to the booming events in January centered on tourism and trade. Featuring an original score based on sounds sampled during Roscina’s residency, the film artfully balances Western nostalgia with a subtle questioning of the environmental impacts of the livestock trade.
