student scholars

The Art and Environmental Action
Student Scholars Program represented
the culmination of the “Changing Views: Photography and Environmental Action” project. These scholarships served as the pilot of the OpenGrounds Student Scholars Program and provided funding for four exceptional students, pursuing three projects and working with faculty mentors, to develop and implement new ideas at the intersection of art, research, and scholarship.


The three projects are:

Carbon Feed, by Jon Bellona, Ph.D. candidate in Composition and Computer Technologies.

The Infrastructural Wild, by Gwendolyn McGinn and Rachel Vassar, 2014 Master of Landscape Architecture graduates.

Community Listening in Isle Royale National Park, by Erik Deluca, Ph.D. Candidate in Composition and Computer Technologies.
