Summer 2013 SA Wyoming Field Study Opportunity

Through the University Honors College, Studio Arts will once again offer this three-credit sixteen-day intensive in Wyoming. Students will meet in Denver in early July for gallery and museum tours and then will head north 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 will 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.

While 2013 will be our fifth consecutive year to offer this two-week intensive, it is not clear if it will continue annually or if it will rotate every other year with another program; please don’t assume that it will be offered in the summer of 2014 because this is not yet confirmed. If you have any questions regarding the program, please email Professor Jenkins at:

Please submit a proposal for the Summer 2013 Field Study to Professor Jenkins by Noon on Monday, February 18th, cover sheets will be available in 118. Proposals should articulate anticipated plans for a directed-study like experience (what you hope to accomplish in the media you plan to work in, scale/size of works, number of works, etc.) framed by your interest in the intensive. This opportunity is best suited for upper-level majors, though less advanced majors and non-majors may apply - students who have recently graduated may also apply. Enrollment limit is four students.

The cost is estimated at $600/credit, which includes tuition as well as room and board throughout the intensive. Students are responsible for their transportation to and from Denver, Colorado and may be asked to make a non-refundable deposit of $500 to reserve a place in the course once their proposal is accepted.
