Outdoor Sculpture 2020 - Student Artist: Erin Mauk (Wildlife Ecology and Conservation)

"I used walnut tree leaves, stripped the leaves away on one side, then buried each end of each leaf stem into the dirt, to create arch-like shapes ... I was trying to accomplish the appearance of a line going in and out of the ground. I wanted a line that appeared to dive into the dirt, and then pop back out a few inches later, only to dive back in again."

About the Outdoor Sculpture class:

This class is taught by Lisa Gordillo (VPA). This is Michigan Tech’s first fully-online sculpture class. Students focus on making works or art outside, and use the landscape around them as their studio. Because we’re several months into “social distancing” and many folks are longing for connection, Gordillo worked to make a class that creates connections with community (even at a distance). Student sculptors consider art, ecology, and social connection as they make new works of art this summer.  For more details, view the VPA blog post here
