Conversations Beyond the Walls: A Virtual Symposium

The University of Wyoming Art Museum and American Studies Program host a series of talks, presentations and art activations during October 2020 in conjunction with the exhibition Moving Walls: Heart Mountain Barracks in the Big Horn Basin. The goals of this series are to honor the history of Japanese American peoples incarcerated in Wyoming and beyond, and to integrate arts with complex cultural issues. In doing so, we hope to use an historical event to address contemporary narratives such as global human migrations, displacement of peoples, power and control, empathy and belonging, homesteading, resiliency, diversity, and social justice issues of today.

Women in Wyoming exhibits powerful stories at UW Art Museum

Laramie Boomerang, January 15, 2021 ‖ On a Thursday morning, the University of Wyoming Art Museum was empty, save for a welcoming young person sitting at the front desk behind a Plexiglas shield. The murmuring of a woman’s voice echoed through the hallways.

Follow the woman’s voice to the gallery space, and you may find that you’re the only one there. But, you wouldn’t be alone. Rather, you would find yourself surrounded by influential women captured in vibrant portraits. This is artist Lindsay Linton Buk’s “Women in Wyoming: Portraits and Interviews of Women Who Shape the West.”
