A new exhibition, “Pat Guthrie Teaching Gallery Exhibition,” will open Saturday, Sept. 2, at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
The Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery presents artwork chosen to support graduate and undergraduate teaching by faculty members from the areas of Spanish, history, geography, the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center, and the Global and Area Studies Program at UW and Laramie County Community College (LCCC).
The teaching gallery model integrates original art into coursework curriculum and presents exhibitions available to students and the public throughout the semester. The exhibition space is divided into four sections -- each of which engages themes, issues or content areas that support a specific course or set of courses.
Faculty members may schedule class visits to the gallery, arrange meetings with museum education and curatorial staff, and encourage students to engage with the artwork independently outside of class time. The Pat Guthrie Teaching Gallery exhibitions support core learning outcomes and may form the basis of writing and research assignments, oral presentations and group projects.
Courses this semester are: “HIST 1221 -- U.S. Since 1865 (LCCC)”; “NASC 5650 -- Place-Based Learning”; “HIST/ART/AMST/ANTH 2700 -- Introduction to Museology”; “GEOG 4590/5590 -- Geography of Conflicts”; “SPAN 3120 -- Survey of Spanish American Literature”; “HIST 2380 -- Latin American History 1500-2000”; and “INST 4990/5990 -- Politics of Natural Resources in Latin America.” The exhibition is on view through Dec. 16.
Through its “Museum as Classroom” approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 7 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
