By finding inspiration outside the rural environment of Putnam County, the student artists explore, through a variety of media, the relationship between the urban environment and artistic expression. Participating artists include: Allison Baccich, Jenna Campbell, Audrey Gehlhausen, Alia Hazel, and Justin Kruse.
