We are getting closer to Thanksgiving which means two things; 1. time to stock up on last minute groceries and 2. get ready for family to start arriving. The week is starting to pick up and if you still have a list of things to do today is the time you can finish up. Here is your Daily Dose brought to you by the Laramie Area Chamber of Commerce.
1. American Regionalism: Selections from the Art Museum Collection. Showing until December 21, 2012 American Regionalism was one of the dominant art movements of the 1930’s and artists’ depictions provided a reassuring view of American life. This exhibit is being held in the UW Art Museum.
2. Patagonia Sin Represas Exhibit. Showing until November 30, 2012 in Gallery 234 in the Wyoming Union.
Patagonia is a changing place: formerly wild, it has recently had an influx of tourism and, inevitably, technology. The greatest change is due to Chile’s immediate energy needs. Recent changes have led to Endesa (a Spanish-owned electric company) and Chile’s Colbun have been “gaining momentum towards the construction of several large hydroelectric dams on Chile’s biggest rivers.”
