Trout Lake by Ann Singsaas, Artist in Residence 2013

Art and Science

Water has been a source of inspiration for artists and scientists throughout history.  In 2014, the Center for Limnology and UW-Madison’s Art Department received funding to foster collaboration between artists and scientists as they explored long-term ecological change in our world.  The first of many collaborations was FLUX: Water, Art and Science with Sarah FitzSimons of the UW-Madison Art Department and Steve Carpenter of the UW-Madison Center for Limnology.  Hasler Lab, Trout Lake Station and North Temperate Lake offer opportunities for art and science collaboration.
