In Ken's Words
“I was a naturalist down to my toes and fingertips-teetering between art and science, seeking synthesis.”
Fawns can be seen wandering this time of year around campus with their mothers never far behind. Unlike humans who take their first steps when they're around one year old, fawns master the art of walking in the first few hours of their life. Photo by Evan Silk.
