Eastern Box Turtle Paintings
Heather Foster, limited term faculty of visual arts at University of North Georgia, and students Kati Hornick and Aida Alarcon, create artwork inspired by the box turtle research conducted by Dr. Jennifer Mook and Dr. Natalie Hyslop, associate professors of biology at UNG. The biology-influenced art of two students is one of 10 Faculty Undergraduate Summer Engagement (FUSE) projects. In its eighth year, FUSE pairs faculty and students together in full-time research projects for seven weeks. Teams then present to other FUSE faculty and peers and receive critical feedback on their findings. FUSE is sponsored by the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities.
