The annual Student Juried show is a pretty big deal at the University of Wyoming. This is my first time having work selected for the show. Persistence certainly pays off. My Malcolm X poster, titled “Who Taught you to Hate?” made it into this art show.
There are a variety of awards at the opening. I received a purchase award from the Information Technology department and the Margaret Murdock Award for Social Justice cash award.
After the opening reception all students with work attend an after party with the president of the university, the college, and the Art Department faculty. This event is referred to as the “Prom for the Art Department.”
Though this event is over there is certainly time to visit the University of Wyoming Art Museum. There is even an audio recording about this work to which you can listen.
