The University of Wyoming's new visual arts facility will be dedicated Friday, Jan. 20, at 10:45 a.m. Refreshments and tours of the facility will be offered following the ribbon-cutting program.
Located at 22nd Street and Willett Drive east of the Centennial Complex that houses the UW Art Museum, the 79,000-square foot Visual Arts Center expands teaching space and provides additional rooms for student projects.
The facility offers teaching studios and spaces for art history, ceramics, drawing, foundations of art, graphics, painting, printmaking, sculpture and small metals. It also provides administrative offices, a large student commons area, a gallery to exhibit students' work and to support the Visiting Artists Program, and a large lecture room for art classes and other programs.
