THE FLOW PROJECT
In 2022, the Flow Project paired undergraduate student artists with water professionals from across the state of Wisconsin to create art inspired by water. This year’s Flow Project includes cohorts from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Madison, and Stevens Point. From the breakdown of pesticides in Wisconsin’s lakes to a book educating children about the smallmouth bass, this year’s Flow Project is yet another testament to the amazing work being done on behalf of the waterways in and around Wisconsin.

Buskirk’s work and interests sit at the intersection of art, water, and humans, with projects like Water Lines and Stories from the Flood. You can usually find her reading, biking, or looking for birds.
