Past Projects

The Seasons through the Senses

Location: Jenni and Kyle Preserve, Madison
Dates: Spring 2011
Partners: MARC South and Walbridge School
Teaching Artists: Marcia Yapp and Megan Cain

Walbridge students and MARC participants helped create the mural’s imagery by exploring the seasons through the senses. They were asked to draw how each season sounds, tastes, looks, feels, and tastes. These small drawings were then incorporated by the teaching artists into the image on the far right. More than 15,000 tiles were then carefully placed to create this mosaic of the seasons.
