We Are All Water, Decker Lake Youth Center (Spring 2023)
This traveling art exhibition emphasizes connections to water and community. Artwork includes student self-portraits and dyed representations of rivers in the Great Salt Lake (GSL) Basin. These segments represent the northern half of the Jordan River.
Home Collages (Spring 2022)
After focusing on issues of environmental injustice, unequal distribution of waste, and overconsumption of resources, students created collages and/or drawings that represent the environment they grew up in. Then, after pondering solutions, students created collages representing their ideal ecosystem.
Drawing with Bacteria (Spring 2022)
Using inoculator rods and various species of bacteria, students drew virtually invisible artworks on agar plants. The bacterial growth over time, revealed the true colors of the bacteria they used. Students learned about the nature of bacteria growth and explored a medium that allows artists to partner with natural processes and living things.
