Many people don’t necessarily think of art and science as fields having much in common.  Yet some College of the Environment researchers might disagree, often partnering with the art community as a novel way to connect people to science.  Kristin Laidre in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences is participating in a collaborative project with Maria Coryell-Martin, an expeditionary artist, entitled Imaging the Arctic.  The two travel together to sites in the Arctic where Laidre does field research and Coryell-Martin produces artwork that can help “share the Arctic beyond science.” Read more about this project in the Arctic Journal.
