This spring, Auburn University continues its annual interdisciplinary series, Art in Agriculture, which brings together artists, designers and scientists to examine a topic related to agriculture, food, the environment or natural resources. This semesterâ€™s series is titled, â€œReclaiming Ground,â€ and includes two exhibitions, several workshops for kids and seven lectures. One exhibition combines agriculture and architecture, called â€œAgritecture,â€ and another features sustainable designs by students in the Landscape Architecture Program, Design Program and Art Department. The lectures investigate questions such as: What is the role of the artist and designer in society at large? Can ordinary citizens make a difference in their local ecologies? How can a university encourage its students to become involved in their community? Art in Agriculture is jointly hosted by AUâ€™s College of Agriculture, College of Liberal Arts and Department of Art.
