Blake Williford and GA Tech's 'Drawing in Nature Class'

Image
This was the second year we were asked to participate in Lane Duncan and Jeannette Yen's 'Drawing in Nature' class at GA Tech. So far, each year the class came to the Garden for inspiration on aspects of nature that would be fun and interesting to explore artistically.

Overall, I have been incredibly impressed with the students. Not only their final projects and the amount of work that has clearly been invested — but by the specific aspects the students have chosen to explore. The relationship between leaves, shadows and water, for example — or the persistence of urban plants through cracks in a sidewalk.

Now, I may be biased, but the student that I was most impressed with is featured here in this article — Blake Williford, and his project exploring the structure of frogs as related to locomotion.

Blake's project introduction and summary was also very touching, so I thought I would include it here. Stay tuned for when the final projects will be featured in a Gallery O…

The Rabbs' Fringe-Limbed Tree Frog called again ... after years ... and we recorded it!

The advertisement call of the last known Rabbs' Fringe-Limbed Tree Frog in captivity at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This Panamanian species is believed to be extinct in the wild due to the emergent infectious amphibian disease chytridiomycosis, and hasn't been detected in the wild since 2007.
