Art in the Library

Primary tabs

The University of Wyoming Libraries are a strong supporter of the visual arts and we actively curate a growing collection of permanent and temporary art in our spaces. We add artwork to our art collection in a number of ways: purchasing student art to add to our permanent collection, purchasing art by professional local artists, commissioning artwork, and featuring temporary exhibits by both student and professional local artists. In 2003, the University of Wyoming Libraries established the UW Libraries Purchase Award for student artwork and have since purchased work from the UWAM student show every year. Our art collection adds vitality to the spaces of Coe Library while supporting and promoting artists and their work. Art in the Libraries is accessible via our Digital Collections. Please enjoy the art! Questions? Contact Bryan Ricupero, Metadata Librarian,
