Meet The Artist Series Launches This Fall with Wyoming Poet Lauriate Rose Hill

BIG HORN, Wyo. (September 3, 2015) – This September The Brinton Museum will present its new Meet The Artist series, an educational program introducing patrons of all ages to a wide variety of artists, poets, writers, artisans, scientists and other professionals. “This series will take a personal approach,” said Ken Schuster, executive director of the museum. “Artists will talk about their craft and speak with guests about art, life and history as well as science and various other topics of significance in an informal, drop-in setting.”


The Meet The Artist series of events begins with Wyoming Poet Laureate Rose Hill who will present a reading on September 20 of “Song of Wyoming” that she wrote for Wyoming’s 125th Statehood Anniversary celebration. On October 18, Montana Circle of American Masters artist Birdie Real Bird of the Crow Nation will talk with visitors about the importance of Crow beading and its history in American Indian culture. She will also offer a beading workshop on October 17. On November 15, artist Gary Huber will present a pastel demonstration in the former reception gallery accompanied by an exhibit of his work: pastel landscapes en plein air style and from photos in the studio, all of which will be available for purchase. Meet the Artist events are free to members and included with the price of admission for non-members.
