During his travels through the Great Lakes’ varied ecosystems, artist Alexis Rockman collected dirt, sand, leaves, and other organic materials to create his field drawings. These drawings—twenty-eight of which are included in The Great Lakes Cycle—emphasize his observational talent and encompass a wide variety of species, sites, and materials.

Work alongside Alexis Rockman, and immerse yourself in his creative process and the ecology of the Great Lakes. Create an original work of art of your own with found material from around campus.
