The University of Wyoming Art Museum’s 20th annual Gala ball and fundraiser is at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, in the Wyoming Union Yellowstone Ballroom. The theme is “Laissez les bons temps rouler” or “Let the good times roll.”

Chris and Kathryn Boswell of Cheyenne chair this year’s event.

“We are honored to chair the 2013 Gala, and thrilled that new UW President Bob Sternberg and his wife, Karin, will be joining us at what promises to be a fun evening for a great purpose,” say the Boswells. “The Art Museum and its outreach programs not only impact the quality of life around Wyoming; the preschool through college education programs strengthen student problem-solving and critical thinking skills -- a great benefit to our future workforce.”

“Laissez les bons temp rouler” is planned as a fun-filled, festive evening of fine food, beverages, music and an expansive silent auction. Invitations will be mailed in September. To be added to the invitation list, call the Art Museum’s administrative assistant at (307) 766-3477.

The annual black tie event is presented by the National Advisory Board of the UW Art Museum and provides significant program funds for Art Museum exhibitions, collections, education and outreach. The Art Museum is Wyoming’s only academic museum, which presents art from around the world and places art at the center of learning for all ages.
