GVSU Chalk Art Symposium Fall 2022 (5 Photos)

OURS hosted the first annual GVSU Chalk Art Symposium. The symposium featured the work of student researchers, scholars, and musicians through non-traditional means. OURS partnered with GVSU Alum and chalk artist, Emily Miller, who worked with students, faculty, and research teams to translate research from traditional posters and oral talks to the sidewalk.

Geography and Sustainable Planning was well represented with several pieces from GPY101 and 410. Kate Poynter's (GPY Major) project on pollinators habitat landscape patches on campus was excellent and the Climate Education Solutions Summit was well received. Most importantly, our students had fun painting together.

Thursday, September 29, 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. on the outside Mary Idema Pew Library, Northeast Plaza.
