“Metal Inkorporated”, is a traveling exhibition curated by Associate Professor Leah Hardy, of the University of Wyoming Metalsmithing Program. The exhibition is based on collaboration between fifteen metalsmiths and fifteen printmakers who each etched a plate of copper and then traded it with their partner to create a final work of art. Leah Hardy writes, “Without exception, each artist brought his or her own aesthetic into the final manifestation of the collaboration, and many found that they pushed into new conceptual, technical or formal territory.”
