A chance meeting three years ago over dinner at the Ucross Foundation schoolhouse led to a unique collaboration between UHPSI and a group of faculty/alumni from the Land Arts of the American West Program at the University of New Mexico. Over the course of two summers, the collaborative team worked together in the field to design interactive pieces that bridged the worlds of art and science.
Following a successful show at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery in the summmer and fall of 2015, “Ucross: A Portrait in Place” came to Yale F&ES in a well reviewed spring semester gallery showing in Kroon Hall. Upon completion of our Yale show, our group was honored by an invite to showcase our work at the Lannan Foundation in Santa Fe. It was a humbling experience having the opportunity to share our work and love of Ucross with such a distinguished group of artists and scholars.
