2023 MCAD Collegiate Fellowship
Ren is a BFA student at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. For their two-month fellowship at MCBA this summer, Ren will be working on a carousel book with six pages detailing different activities and wildlife that are found in Brushy Creek Recreational Area, Iowa, a park Ren grew up near. The content of the book will cover activities people can access in the park, including excellent fishing in a newly-formed lake, the wildlife that make the park their home, and the future of our parks and recreational areas. “I want to make this page ask what the readers’ actions will be to help our environment,” they mentioned in their project proposal about the last page in the book.
