    Event Leader Bio: 
    Sage Rogers enjoys working with children of all backgrounds and ages, and hopes that through the arts more creative and active citizens can be
    unleashed. Rogers is an Athens native, and graduated from UGA with a BA in Comparative Literature and from Brandeis University with an MA in Cultural Production with a focus on Art and Education. While in Boston completing her Masters degree, she interned at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for the education department and worked for Dot Art, a non-profit center for the visual arts. She will be starting the MAEd program in Art Education in the fall.

    This event is affiliated with 'The Way Things Work,' an exhibit of participatory art by six artists, which will run though Sunday, March 6th, 2011. This colorful and spectacular exhibit features large-scale installation, indoor and outdoor sculpture, drawings, videos and sound art by 11 national and international artists. All of the artists works respond in some way to the systems we subscribe to as a culture, revealing and deconstructing norms. Click here to see images or video.
