Sarah Grabner is an alum who only recently has moved on from her time in Athens. She was a member of the Kennedy team for many years and helped in some of the major projects that helped get the museum to where it is today. Now she works at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. Sarah is a great example of how years of hard work can get you into a career you love!
There’s a theory that in early human evolution, it wasn’t the spear that came first, but the vessel (Le Guin). How can you store or carry hunted meat without a sling or a bag? Even before that, how can you carry water, berries, or children? Regardless of timing, throughout human history we have always needed to contain things. One of the most common ways, to this day, to carry or contain our food and possessions is through ceramics.
The first alumni spotlight of this school year is Jeremiah Myers. Jeremiah worked at the Kennedy Museum of Art for his whole time as a bobcat, now he works in the education department at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
