Professor's art on the river

Sculpture on banks of Mississippi River

A large scale sculpture by DWC Assistant Professor of Art Jeremy Rudd is on display in Dubuque as part of the Art on the River exhibit.

"Wishing, Well" is a visual allegory based upon Rudd's observations of large scale irrigation well systems and the resulting land formation around them. This method of bringing water to the surface to support growth, often in arid climates, has become more and more prevalent in the rural agricultural landscape around the world. As humans delve deeper and deeper to satisfy the need for fresh water, we deplete the sources faster than they can regenerate.
