(In)visible | A Socially Engaged Art Event

The students in Art, Action and the Environment, taught by assistant professor of sculpture intermedia, Wendy Wischer, collaborated to design and implement this capstone project, funded by the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund (SCIF).

The art project consists of personal, open letters written to U of U students about the impact of the University on the Red Butte Creek. They created a community-engaged art project which will open on Marriott Library Plaza Tuesday, April 25 at 12:30pm. They will also present the project during an exhibition displayed in the first floor of the ART Building.
