Spend Saturday touring sculpture in Laramie

From a UW press release:

The University of Wyoming Art Museum has scheduled free walking and bus tours of the sculptures installed throughout Laramie and on the UW campus Saturday, Oct. 4. The tours will begin at the UW Art Museum, located in the Centennial Complex, 2111 Willett Drive.

Bus tours and discussions of all of the off-campus works in “Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational” will be at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. There is no charge, but the seating is limited. Call the Art Museum at (307) 766-6622 to reserve the tickets.

Walking tours of the sculptures located at the Art Museum and Prexy’s Pasture will be at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. No reservations are necessary.

Education Curator Wendy Bredehoft suggests that walking tours participants wear comfortable shoes and plan to spend up to two hours exploring these sculptures.

“These tours, which are led by museum staff and trained museum volunteers, are a fun way to learn more about the artists and the sculpture they have created,” Bredehoft says. A self-guided tour map is also available at the Art Museum lobby and at each sculpture for those who want to view the sculptures on their own.

“Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational” has been organized by the UW Art Museum in partnership with Laramie Parks & Recreation, Laramie Economic Development Corporation and the Albany County Public Library. The exhibition continues through July 2009.
