The University of Wyoming Foundation and the American Heritage Center (AHC) have teamed up to present three new photography and image exhibitions at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center.
Exhibits are drawn from the AHC collections and feature insights into the people of Wyoming and its open spaces.
The first floor exhibit focuses on UW and is titled “History Happened Here! It draws on many collections from UW departments, professors, presidents, students and alumni. These photographs provide snapshots of life at UW since its founding in 1886, providing invaluable insight into the daily life of the university.
The exhibition on the second floor is called “Crossing the Paths”. It presents the photographs of Finis Mitchell (1901-1995), mountaineer and photographer, which are now in his eponymous collection at AHC. His climbing exploits in the Wind River Range, the Bridger Wilderness and the Teton Range were well known.
The third floor exhibit features a new collection: Jerry Palen’s “Stampede” cartoon series. In its 43-year existence, “Stampede” has grown into the largest weekly syndicated cartoon feature film in the agriculture industries of the United States and Canada, reaching a weekly audience of over 2 million. readers.
The works will be on display at the Gateway Center until March.
