Lomask brought her unique perspective on art and science to the Black Hills State University campus earlier this week.
Black Hills State University art students in Desy Shoenewies’s classes took an interdisciplinary and environmental approach to their latest art project.
The students, elementary education and art education majors,included garbage items in their art as they developed and presented their lesson plans to their fellow classmates. The two art projects, now displayed on the third floor of Woodburn, both use recycled materials and teach a lesson beyond art.
While earning their degrees at Black Hills State University, Kalani Corpuz, a mass communication major from Rapid City, and Markus Heinrich,a business administration entrepreneurship major from Whitewood, saw an opportunity to increase recycling. Their focus on being environmentally friendly ultimately led to the creation of a business, Cans 2 Cans Recycling LLC.
