The exhibitions come from the AHC’s collections and feature looks into Wyoming’s people and its open spaces.

The first-floor exhibition focuses on UW and is called “History Happened Here!” It draws upon numerous collections from UW departments, professors, presidents, students, and alumni, These photographs give snapshots of life at UW since its founding in 1886, offering invaluable glimpses into the everyday life of the university.

The second-floor exhibition is titled “Traversing the Trails.” It features the photographs of Finis Mitchell (1901-1995), a mountain climber and photographer, now featured in his eponymous collection at the AHC. His climbing exploits in the Wind River Range, the Bridger Wilderness, and the Teton Range were well known.

The third-floor exhibition features a new collection: Jerry Palen’s “Stampede” cartoon series. During its 43-year run, “Stampede” became the largest weekly syndicated cartoon feature in the agriculture sectors of the United States and Canada, growing to a weekly audience of more than 2 million readers.

The works will be on display at the Gateway Center until March.
