Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit
Central Wyoming College is becoming known for its collection of outdoor abstract sculpture and visitors are invited to walk the campus to view the variety of art.
For visitors and community members, the CWC campus is becoming one of the "culturally interesting" stops in town," said art professor Nita Kehoe, who said the exhibit is open 24-7, 365 days a year. The CWC campus is located just west of Riverton, Wyo., on U.S. Highway 26.
Kehoe initiated "Outward Westward," a call for artists from around the world to submit "earthworks" or "collaborative pieces" four years ago. Each year, new sculptures are loaned and others are permanently installed into the CWC landscape.
Over the years, several of the sculptures have become ensconced into the CWC landscape. "Windows West," a series of windows constructed by Allyn Elkin on the expansive Circle Drive in front of campus, became part of the college's landscape in 2003, as has last year's sculpture "Five Ways of Looking."
Miami, Florida artist Tim Curtis installed "Wind River Circle," a piece that represents the need for unity among CWC's cultures.
Chris Fennell, an artist from Alabama, created "Tree Wave," a large sculpture that transformed logs and old lumber into a woven structure that will "dynamically move and respond" to the CWC campus.
Another permanent installation near the two new sculptures is "Carbon Cycle Inventory," a sculpture of trees that signal the reclamation of a balanced carbon cycle. In the middle of it is "Leaf Cathedral," a steel, cast iron, bronze and glass piece installed in 2004.
Permanent pieces, other sculptures on the CWC campus are installed on the campus for a period of a year.
Brochures are available in the Robert A. Peck Arts Center so that people can take a self-guided tour of the sculpture exhibit.
