Architecture for Art: University of Wyoming's place in the history of modern museum architecture


The turn of this century may be remembered as the Golden Age of museum architecture. MOMA, the Guggenheim, and University of Wyoming Art Museum are all among the elite structures showcased in the coffe-table tome, “Architecture for Art: American Art Museums, 1938-2009”. Wyoming Signataures’ Ali Grossman met with the book’s editor, Scott Tilden, to discuss our place in the history of modern museum architecture.
