Exhibitions Overview

The University of Wyoming Art Museum’s exhibitions brings the world of art to Wyoming to support the academic mission of the University of Wyoming, provide original resource material for students of all ages, and enhance the cultural life of Wyoming’s citizens and visitors.

The Art Museum features an average of 16 exhibitions annually. Exhibitions include art and objects curated from the permanent collection, contemporary art by regional, national and international artists, and art from the American West. Exhibitions rotate generally on a semester schedule, allowing professors to incorporate original artwork into their curriculum and providing access for students to view and use the exhibitions as a resource for original research and scholarship.
