Grand View Student Makayla Carlson Selected for Competitive Residency Program

April 5, 2019

Makayla Carlson (Studio Arts major, graduating in 2019), was recently selected to participate in a competitive residency program for artists of all disciplines who wish to explore connections to nature and science in their work. The Lakeside Lab is a biological field station and nature preserve located in the northwest region of Iowa. The residency program is offered with an eye towards Long Term Ecological Reflections, a national partnership between biological field stations that support thoughtful relationships between art and science. Carlson's work was recently featured in a senior exhibition on campus, exploring themes of ecology and psychology using natural materials. She will be an artist in residence this summer.
