Visual Arts | University of Wyoming
The recently-opened, two-level, 80,0000 SF Visual Arts Facility at the University of Wyoming provides state-of-the-art facilities for ceramics, sculpture, painting, small metals, printmaking, digital media, and art history. The building earned LEED Platinum certification, an especially notable achievement in a facility with so many specialized mechanical ventilation systems.
The new facilities incorporate the latest technology; provide a safe environment for all users; and promote interdisciplinary collaboration. A welcoming lobby and art gallery encourage community outreach.
The building’s exterior features the sandstone and other materials used in the center of Campus yet presents a new look appropriate to the Visual Arts activities inside. It aligns comfortably with the architecture of the adjacent Heritage Center, while maintaining a clearly distinct identity.
Malone Belton Abel served as prime architect in collaboration with our associate, THA Architecture of Portland, Oregon.
