Join us for a FREE gallery walk-through featuring student award winners from the “43rd Annual Juried University of Wyoming Student Exhibition” on Monday, March 19, from 5:30-7 p.m.
The gallery walk-through is an opportunity to hear students discuss their artistic motivations such as what drives the content of their work, why specific artistic media was chosen, and to answer visitors’ questions. This opportunity allows students to develop as professional artists and bolster public speaking skills.
The annual Juried UW Student Exhibition is open to any student enrolled at UW or any in-state student enrolled through the Outreach School during the current academic year
An out-of-state juror is invited each year to select the exhibition from student submissions. This year’s juror was Pam Campanaro, director of galleries, University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, Colorado.
For the “43rd Annual Juried University of Wyoming Student Exhibition,” 71 students from 24 different majors submitted 175 works of art for review from which 55 artworks by 39 students were selected.

The Bad Plus came together at the end of the 20th century and has avoided easy categorization ever since, winning critical hosannas and a legion of fans worldwide with their creativity, unique sound, and flair for live performance. Based in NYC, the intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques. Except for its interpretation of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring”, the band’s last four albums focused almost exclusively on original compositions. “It’s Hard” marks the band’s return to the aspect of its roots that first made it famous: the deconstruction of songs from the Pop/Rock and R&B worlds.
