Historical Context:
"Summer Seasonal I is a part of a series of eight illustrations that represent the vegetation and wildlife that live among us in Western Michigan, and invites viewers to contemplate the relationship we share with nature through the form of a narrative that spans across all four seasons of a year...The illustrations aspire to bring awareness to the often-ignored living things that surround humanity- to create a sense of compassion and understanding of their existence among us, and allow viewers to contemplate and reflect on their own personal relationship to the natural world." -Randi Ford
