Going the distance
a model for meaningful outreach
As the only four-year academic institution in the geographically large and rural state of Wyoming (WY), the University of Wyoming Art Museum (UWAM) was challenged to create meaningful access to the museum and ist collection statewide. Launched in 1982, the Ann Simpson Artmobile Program (Artmobile) is a vital outreach component of the UWAM and the University of Wyoming (UW). In this paper, I will discuss how the program is organized and funded as well as recent enhancements that are effectively addressing K-12 curricular support, community access and promotion for the UWAM and UW. I also will indicate how this program may serve as an example or model for other institutions in North America or elsewhere that wish to provide outreach to rural and distant communities.
