    Cahaba River Watershed Project

    Printmaker Scott Stephens and media artist Elisabeth Pellathy, shown here, partnered with sculptor Lee Somers in the Cahaba River Watershed Project to explore the Cahaba River’s ecological and geological features and how they have shaped the economic and social history of the watershed. Their prints feature images derived from drawing, photography, 3D scanning of natural objects, and 3D modeling from original maps and diagrams. Stephens and Somers are art faculty at the University of Montevallo, and Pellathy teaches at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
