January 24, 2013 — Visiting artist Carol Prusa, known for her acrylic hemispherical domes that are articulated with silverpoint drawing and graphite, and punctuated by fiber optic lights, will present two programs at the University of Wyoming.
Prusa will present a public “Art Talk” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, in the UW Visual Arts building. An informal gallery walk-through at the UW Art Museum is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1. Both programs are free and open to the public.
The programs are in conjunction with her solo exhibition, “Carol Prusa: Emergent Worlds,” which will be on display at the Art Museum Feb. 1-May 11.
In her work, Prusa uses mathematical models that physicists have developed to explain the universe. Her geometries are expressed as intricate and interconnected, offering a spiritual force in the ordering of a real world sustained by its own logic. The result is work that evokes ideas of origin, mysticism and sacredness.
“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 in Laramie, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 9 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
