Art professor Erin Wiersma uses char from tallgrass burns and an intensely physical process to capture the prairie. Gaze at Flint Hills tallgrass prairie, and you may see scenic hills stretching under an open sky, a home to richly diverse wildlife, or an ancient sea floor. Erin Wiersma, associate professor of art at Kansas State University, sees a new way to draw and understand her adopted home.
