Applying Arts Reasoning To Explain/Express Sustainability

"Long Marine Lab Research Coordinator, Betsy Steele, proposed an artistic and visual representation of the types of research performed at LML and in the field - with the hard work of Willow Moseley, it quickly became more than just an idea. Steele and Moseley had many in-depth conversations about the project and Moseley was highly receptive to the dynamic images and concepts asked of her. Together, they created a piece that not only reflects the diverse types of research at LML, but it is also a study in community ecology.

"A field trip to a remote marine lab by graduate students from fine arts and natural resource science stimulated them to think creatively about the topic of climate change and science communication and promoted creative problem solving"

Gaining an understanding of the environment through arts reasoning promotes creativity to protect it.
