Photo Pick: Science and art by Peggy CozartThis FUSE summer art project is creating art inpsired by the study of box turles and their habitat. Shown here are Heather Foster and Kati Hornik. Heather Foster (dark shirt) is a UNG visual arts faculty member who is creating paintings based on her box turtle observstions. Kati Hornik (plaid shirt) is a UNG student making ceramic pieces showing box turtles and their environment.
Peggy shares: “Science and art come together at the University of North Georgia. Based on the Eastern Box Turtle, this recent work was produced as a collaboration between the UNG science and art departments. On the biology side, the turtles were tracked and studied in the field. On the art side, students and faculty created paintings and ceramic pieces inspired by the turtles. The work is currently on display in the atrium of the Science, Engineering and Technology building on the UNG Gainesville campus.”
