Nashville artist Adrienne Outlaw will present a visiting artist lecture Thursday, Sept. 8, at 7 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Visual Arts Gallery. The event is free and open to the public.

Outlaw will discuss her work in Room 111 of the Visual Arts Building, followed by a reception. The UW Department of Art and Art History will display Outlaw’s recent work, titled “Slices,” Sept. 8-Oct. 21 in the gallery. The gallery is located in the Visual Arts Building, on the corner of 22nd Street and Willet Drive.

Outlaw received her BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and her Master of Arts in liberal studies from Vanderbilt University. Outlaw is a socially engaged, interdisciplinary artist whose work is informed by ethical issues. She is curious about the individual’s function in and responsibility to the community, and how a person can retain autonomy in an increasingly diverse and rapidly advancing world.

Her studio practice is rooted both in object making and community engagement. Interested in ways artists can partner with the public to create positive change, she often collaborates with and invites others to participate in the realization of works addressing issues of individual and communal health.

For more information, call the UW Department of Art and Art History at (307) 766-3269.
