Women in Wyoming
October 25, 2019 – August 2, 2020
This project by photographer, artist, and Powell, Wyoming, native Lindsay Linton Buk makes its worldwide debut here at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West on October 25, 2019. The exhibit, an immersive experience and celebration of Wyoming’s incredible women, features large-scale portraits, an audio soundscape, and interactive elements with profiles from several of the project’s chapters: Chapter I: Breaking Boundaries, Chapter II: Filling the Void, Chapter III: Power, and Chapter IV: Rising; the exhibition includes a preview of Chapter V: The Cowgirl State as well.
Linton Buk created Women in Wyoming as a way to tell the stories of and celebrate the achievements, power, and learned wisdom of contemporary Wyoming women through art and media. The project shares stories through portrait photography and a podcast, where Linton Buk sits down with women from across Wyoming. In her own words:
“The timing with Women in Wyoming and the 150th anniversary of Wyoming giving women the right to vote is incredible,” said Linton Buk. “In a state as rural as Wyoming, we’re often isolated, so it’s vital to be able to see your peers and the important work they’re doing. Women in Wyoming is important now because it gives women strong examples to look up to and show the many pathways to success in the rural West today.”
Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.
