COVID-19 Communication

UPDATE: 3/17/20 

In the interest of safety for our visitors and staff, we have made the difficult decision to close the Art Museum effective March 18 until further notice.

Please see the university’s designated COVID-19 website for more information at https://www.uwyo.edu/shser/corona-virus.html.

Regretfully, we have cancelled all events and programs through the remaining semester until May 15. Meantime, our teams are working on some creative virtual engagement for all ages. We encourage you to stay connected with the Art Museum through our online resources and social media platforms.

We look forward to reopening to the public as soon as possible. We invite you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram. You can also visit the Art Museum’s homepage, search the collections or explore our YouTube videos.

The recording includes a short video walk through of the exhibition and sneak peak of Amdur's studio and current works in progress.
