Species of Hope: Amery Inquiring Minds Youth Art Exihibit
February 26, 2018
Each student group will spend time researching different species on the Wisconsin Natural Heritage Working List, and will do so, using credible non-internet sources. After carefully selecting the species that matters most to them, each group will draft a project proposal and present to a jury panel for approval.
The student groups will collaborate on a single work of art demonstrating what they have come to understand during the research phase, from: habitat, diet, environmental risks, and creature benefits. The final work of art will be completed using watercolors and pencils and hung on display in the Farm Table Foundation – Exhibition Hall. When you tour the exhibit, you are given a chance to hear from each group with our Audio Guide – hear the students explain the thoughts and ideas generated by the art making and research process.
The artwork will be on display in the Farm Table Foundation – Exhibit Hall, the exhibits are free and open to the public. Please consider joining the students and their families during the Opening Reception on Friday, March 9th, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Katy Ellefson with Power Up 4 Kids will be assisting the students to prepare healthy & delicious Hors d’oeuvres for all to enjoy during the reception!
