The DNR is once again looking for original art to accompany its conservation funds-raising game bird stamps. We talk with the project’s organizer about what they’re after, and how the funds get used. And an art educator gives us some tips for bringing out our own inner artist. We also hear about a violent protest in Madison last night.
