Marcos Aleman, sophomore in landscape architecture and regional & community planning from Gardner, KS, completed a series of botanical sketches of the native grasses and wildflowers that grow in The Meadow, a landscape of native grasses and wildflowers located behind the Beach Museum of Art. His sketches contributed to an interactive touchscreen display that will debut at the museum as part of All-University Open House activities on Saturday, April 1.
Aleman's research mentor is Katie Kingery-Page. Together, they are also working on comparing maintenance estimates used for the Meadow versus those for other areas of campus. Kingery-Page said of Marcos, "He is a key player in this project. If he doesn't know how to do something, he'll say, 'I will do it; now, how do I do it?' He doesn't shy away from the task. Also, I have enjoyed watching his creative abilities grow. His drawing skills are becoming fantastic."
