Artmobile planning county visits several days this monthJan 10, 2016 From staff reports
The University of Wyoming Art Museum's Ann Simpson Artmobile visits Lander, Pavillion and Riverton this month.
The Ann Simpson Artmobile is a free core outreach program for the University of Wyoming Art Museum, traveling with museum-quality original artwork statewide for the past 34 years.
On average, the Artmobile travels two to three weeks out of every month to Wyoming communities to enhance exposure to original art.
The Artmobile reaches out to people of all ages, backgrounds and developmental abilities, with special focus given to Wyoming's K-12 schools, along with underserved adult populations.
UW's Artmobile educator is Erica Ramsey, who implements the program year-round.
The Artmobile's current exhibition is "Surrealism: Visions of the Mind," featuring the work of 15 different artists.
The Artmobile visits Lander Valley High School Monday, Jan. 18, through Wednesday, Jan. 20.
On the 19th LVHS hosts an art "community night," welcoming visitors to the school from 6-8 p.m.
The public is welcome to see the Artmobile exhibition and play a surrealist are game with family and friends.
On Thursday, Jan. 21, the Art-mobile comes to Wind River High School in Pavillion.
And on Friday, Jan. 22, the Art-mobile is at Aspen Park Elementary School in Riverton.
Union Wireless sponsors the current Artmobile Tour.
Through its Museum as Classroom approach, the University of Wyoming Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages, supports the academic mission of the University, assists in preparing our future workforce with essential skills, and enhances the cultural life of Wyoming's citizens and visitors.
