Williams creates ‘Stay Wild’ community art project

Lincoln, Neb.--Associate Professor of Art Sandra Williams worked with students last fall at Park Middle School in Lincoln to create the “Stay Wild” community art project.

“Community-based arts have always been, and always will be, part of my creative agenda,” Williams said. “Instead of a ‘top-down’ lecture, I prefer that the community explore the role arts play in creative placemaking, have the tactile experience of handling cut paper in the form of stencils and engage with the top of animals in a creative manner.”
