Indigenous Plants Comunity Drawing Marathon • Saline County

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010 @ 10am-5pm
Salina, KS • Map

The Salina Art Center, The Land Institute & The Field School invite all children, youth, adults & seniors to step into the yard to make 1 drawing of an indigenous plant, insect, reptile, bird, or other animal in Kansas, on reused or recycled letter-size paper. A panel of Kansas field naturalists will judge the submissions. Supported by a grant from the Good Works Foundation in Los Angeles, visiting art teacher Ernesto Pujol will purchase 1,000 drawings on reused or recycled letter-size paper for $1 cash each. His goal is that participants look for indigenous plants, insects, birds and other animals in Kansas, learning more about their ecology in the process. Pujol and a local designer will create a virtual online Field Journal of the Kansas fauna and flora illustrated entirely by the community. This event is undertaken in partnership with The Land Institute to promote awareness for the preservation and restoration of the prairie. No drawings by mail! You must personally bring it to: The Salina Art Center Warehouse 149 South 4th St. (off Walnut St.)
