Katie Martin-Meurer and her 3-D Concepts classes at UW-Milwaukee displayed their beautiful work at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee in spring 2017. This unique blend of art and conservation was the culmination of two semesters of students who chose to commit their projects to promoting a better understanding of insects in our world. Insect populations are on the decline in Wisconsin and throughout the US. Martin-Meurer and her students hope their work raises awareness for the need to protect insects.

This project was funded in part by the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin.
