The University of Wyoming Art Museum has opened six new exhibits for spring, one of which displays the talents of UW art majors.

The 26th Annual Juror coming from outside of Laramie to look at the work that’s been submitted by any undergraduate or graduate students,” said education curator Scott Boberg.

“The bulk of the entries are from art majors, but we often get submissions from other majors as well.”

The juror then selects the awards.
