Lincoln, Neb.--Scientists have long known that all living things require specific amounts of elements such as carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous to survive and thrive — it’s why we fertilize our yards and crops, for example. But the increasing frequency of phenomena such as harmful algal blooms, nitrate-contaminated water and “dead zones” in oceans and lakes have underscored that there can be too high or low of a concentration of these essential elements in the environment.

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.”
