Stimson photography exhibit on display at Moorcroft Library

Crook County Library is hosting the Wyoming State Museum’s photo exhibit, “J.E. Stimson’s Wyoming.” The exhibit has been on display at the Sundance library and will be at the Moorcroft library during March.

This traveling exhibit examines the work of photographer Joseph Stimson (1870-1952), who captured the beauty of Wyoming in the early 1900s. Stimson was noted throughout the United States for his artistic skills with a camera and his hand-colored photographs.

His career as a photographer spanned 59 years and produced more than 7500 images, most of which reside in the Wyoming State Archives.

The Wyoming State Museum makes a variety of traveling exhibits available to museums, libraries, schools and other cultural institutions throughout the state. These two-dimensional exhibits consist of panels with photographs, illustrations and text.

There is no charge for this program, but borrowers are responsible for paying shipping costs and providing reasonable security for the traveling exhibit.
