USU’s Science Unwrapped probes ‘Salty Metaphors’ Friday, March 20

LOGAN – Utah State University artist Mark Lee Koven explores the intriguing relationship between nature and the land art of Utah’s massive salty sea as featured speaker for USU’s Science Unwrapped Friday, March 20. The assistant professor in USU’s Department of Art + Design and co-director of USU’s ARTsySTEM presents “Salty Metaphors: Land Art of the Great Salt Lake,” at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium (Room 130) of the Eccles Science Learning Center on campus. His talk, free and open to all ages, is followed by hands-on learning activities, exhibits and refreshments.

Hosted by USU’s College of Science, Lee Koven’s presentation is the third of four presentations in Science Unwrapped’s spring 2015 “Great Salt Lake Today” series during the university’s “Year of Water.”

“We welcome our community to experience this fascinating series,” says Nancy Huntly, Science Unwrapped chair, director of USU’s Ecology Center, professor in the Department of Biology and co-director of ARTsySTEM. “Our presentations offer something for everyone.”

New to this month’s event is the “Science Unwrapped Challenge” for children in grades K-5. Science Unwrapped organizers will explain the rules for the challenge, which includes the opportunity to win prizes, at the March 20 presentation.
