In 2013, a group of artists, originally connected through the Land Arts of the American West program at the University of New Mexico, intersected with a group of ecologists from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies in Ucross, Wyoming (population 25). The collaboration that formed over the past three years brought the language of contemporary art to an investigation of Ucross. Artists and ecologists worked together to target specific aspects of Ucross knowing that the joint exhibition would provide a synthesis, a unified portrait in place. Following a successful gallery show at the Ucross Foundation art gallery in Wyoming, the group is thrilled to bring the show out of its place of origin, and honored to share Ucross: A Portrait in Place with students, faculty, staff, and community at F&ES and Yale University.
