University of Wyoming officials destroy artwork to placate energy industry funders

Chris Drury's art installation "Carbon Sink: What Goes Around Comes Around" as it was seen last spring on the UW campus (top photo) and the site as it looks now, the artwork dismantled in the dead of night by university officials and the location covered with neat new sod. Read the whole sordid tale, as told by writer and UW prof Jeffrey Lockwood on wyofile, at http://wyofile.com/2012/07/behind-the-carbon-curtain-art-and-freedom-in-wyoming/.
