UW Art Museum Celebrates Summer Solstice

June 8, 2010

The University of Wyoming Art Museum's annual summer solstice celebration will be held Monday, June 21, at 11:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Every year on the summer solstice, a solar tube in the ceiling of the Art Museum illuminates a silver dollar in the center of the rotunda gallery at exactly noon.

Beginning at 11:30 a.m., astronomer Ray Martin will provide visitors an opportunity to view the surface of the sun through a filtered solar telescope on the building's terrace.

For additional information, call the UW Art Museum at (307) 766-6622, visit the Web site or go to the blog at

"Imagine learning from the masters" is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum's programs. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive, the museum and museum store are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.
