Summer 2016 Studio Arts Field Study in Wyoming
Studio Arts offers this three-credit seventeen-day Field Study Intensive in Wyoming through the University Honors College for the eighth consecutive year. Students meet in Denver in late June for museum visits and then head north via the Snowy Range Pass to Rock River, Wyoming, northwest of Laramie. Situated in the high altitude short grass prairie between the Laramie Mountains and the Medicine Bow Range, students work between an encampment of tents on the Spring Creek Preserve’s 6,000 acres, the Longhorn Motel in Rock River, and makeshift studio space in a 1919 era Bank Building. This year's Field Study includes a trip to Nancy Holt's Sun Tunnels in the Great Basin Desert outside Lucin, Utah, Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty in the Great Salt Lake, and the Red Desert of southwestern Wyoming.
