LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
Lakers have created works of creative writing and art with water topics and themes that are worthy of an audience. Enjoy this collection of creative work from published student-run journals and class projects alike.
Fishladder is a journal of student art and writing, published from 2003 to the present. By name, the journal has a unique connection to water, specifically that which surrounds Grand Valley, and an abundance of water related art and writing. Check out the most recent edition and more water specific pieces.
Some of our students' best work begins with a class assignment and transforms into an excellent example of exactly what Lakers are capable of. Take a look at some creative pieces produced within courses at Grand Valley.
For thousands of years, artists have been fascinated by the flora and fauna of the sea. The Creatures of the Sea art exhibit features works inspired by both mythic creatures and real-life wonders adapted to a life underwater. Artists include students in the Visual and Media Arts Department as well as those from West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science. The exhibit is held in conjunction with the university-wide initiative Making Waves. Check out the art from the exhibit here.
