Panel Discussion: Living Artifacts @ University of Wyoming Art Museum

Join us on Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 6:00 p.m. for a special evening panel discussion about “Living Artifacts: Evolving Traditions and Cultural Perseverance,” an exhibition on view at the UW Art Museum through Saturday, May 12, 2018.

The panel will be a starting point for student and audience dialogues about the ethical and legal issues of collecting ethnographic artifacts and how this process affects the collector, the museum, the artist, and the culture.

Panelists: Darrell D. Jackson, associate professor from the UW College of Law; Sarah Strauss, professor of cultural anthropology from the UW Dept. of Anthropology; and Nicole M. Crawford, curator of collections at the UW Art Museum.
