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 scientists from the Yale University School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. That the two groups found themselves together in the same place at the same time—sometimes at the same dinner table—on Ucross Foundation’s 20,000-acre cattle ranch on the High Plains in Wyoming was not specifically planned. But, as in the best artistic and scientific experiments, there were immediate creative sparks. The culmination of their efforts are on view in Ucross: A Portrait in Place. We are honored to present this unique collaborative exhibition, and grateful to all of the participants for their inspiring and thought-provoking work. Their achievement reveals new facets of what it means to truly inhabit a place. We also extend our thanks to Ucross Foundation’s Board of Trustees, and to our many supporters in our region and beyond, for their ongoing commitment to the creative spirit that flourishes at Ucross.
