LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming Art Museum has received an anonymous donation of $2.3 million, the largest in museum history.

The gift will create an endowment to support lectures, panel discussions and exhibitions of contemporary art - or the work of living, active artists.

Museum Director Susan Moldenhauer tells the Laramie Boomerang (https://bit.ly/2syhbeF ) the museum’s mission is to introduce art to Wyoming that can’t be found otherwise.

The UW Art Museum has nearly 8,000 original art pieces and hosts about 18 exhibitions a year. The museum is funded by the state, membership fees, an annual gala and contributions.
