UW Art Museum’s Ann Simpson Artmobile Will Host Exhibition at Niobrara County Library

The University of Wyoming Art Museum’s Ann Simpson Artmobile will host the exhibition “Surrealism: Visions of the Mind” at the Niobrara County Library Nov. 14-17.

The exhibition will be on display at the Niobrara County Library on Monday, Nov. 14 – Thursday, Nov. 17. The exhibition will be on display for the general public during normal library hours.

K-12 students will be attending deep looking sessions with Artmobile Educator Erica Ramsey throughout the week. Public program offerings for adults will include a “Brown Bag Program” on Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 11:30 am-12:30 pm, and a “Community Night” on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 5:30-6:30 pm.

The Artmobile exhibition “Surrealism: Visions of the Mind,” features the work of fifteen different artists, representing the international significance of this twentieth century artistic movement.

“Niobrara County citizens are invited to come see the Artmobile exhibition and investigate Surrealism, an important art historical movement,” says Erica Ramsey, Artmobile Educator at the UW Art Museum.

The Ann Simpson Artmobile program is a free core outreach program for the University of Wyoming Art Museum, traveling museum-quality original artwork statewide for the past 35 years. On average, the Artmobile travels two to three weeks out of every month to Wyoming communities that have little or no access to original art. The Artmobile reaches out to people of all ages, backgrounds and developmental abilities with special focus given to Wyoming’s K-12 schools, and underserved populations including seniors, veterans and individuals with special needs.

Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 7 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
