The Center for Prairie Studies promotes Grinnell’s location as a teaching and learning resource with special attention to themes of community, sustainability, and place. The Center’s diverse programs encourage the exploration of links between the local and the global in this particular setting: the human place in nature, rural and urban dynamics, migration, food and agriculture, the politics and economics of local communities, and artistic responses to place.
Call for Student Art Projects, Proposals Due Feb. 14
The Center for Prairie Studies (CPS) is interested in commissioning student artistic projects inspired by and created in conversation with the prairie region and our locality.
Proposals will be reviewed by a panel of CPS board members, which will commission three works for showcasing at the Conard Environmental Research Area (CERA) late in the spring semester as a part of a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
Each of the three selected proposals will receive a $300 commission and when completed will become part of the center’s collection.
