ART MUSEUM
UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING
September 8 – December 21, 2012

SYMPOSIUM:
Never Drink Downstream: Factual Tales and
Artful Musing on Wyoming Water

November 8, 6 – 8 pm

WYOMING RIVER FUGUES is the seventh in a series of individually unique site-specific RIVER FUGUES projects which began in 2003 with CUYAHOGA FUGUES in Cleveland, Ohio.

RIVER FUGUES are developed through extensive research that includes traveling to observe, listen and record both the general and specific landscapes; and search for that particular sound or image that captures the pulse of the rivers, the life and surrounding landscapes along rivers. Narratives from individuals who live or work along the rivers, or whose research and work focuses on the natural resources surrounding the rivers have informed the direction and development of Wyoming River Fugues. The resulting installation explores the complex relationship between Wyoming's natural, cultural, historic, engineered and industrial landscapes.
