Think green!
If winter is pulling you down, think ahead to spring later this month. Feel that circadian rhythm! That broth of seed and tuber! Underground machinations! Skyward squackings! That's Kathleen O'Connell’s Green Man to the right, replete with hosta leaves and luna moth and artichoke. O’Connell’s an associate professor of visual communication at the Herron School of Art and created Green Man --a nod to her Irish heritage--to capture the mood for this year's Janus “Green with Envy” Ball on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis. Get ready for other signs of spring!
