Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 


Sarah received her BA in Studio Art from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2006. In 2008, she received her Masters of Art in Digital Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and in 2009 she received her Masters of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging, also from Maryland Institute College of Art. Through her fine art work, Sarah explores the dichotomy between human and digital memory, how the two influence one another, and how they are affected by natural and technological elements of decay. She hopes to create a dialogue about the relationships between personal memory, society’s collective memory, and collective cultural identity.

Boyden Gallery Open House
11:00 am-5:00 pm
Come by the Boyden Gallery to learn about the current show, Object Lessons. Part exhibition and part classroom laboratory, Object Lessons showcases the interdisciplinary teaching and learning potential of works from the college's Fine Art Collection. Working with objects and artifacts is intrinsic to teaching in a studio art, art history, or archaeology curriculum; so the front of the exhibition space is dedicated to work that has been and continues to be used in several existing object-based courses, including American Art, Introduction to Drawing, and Curatorial Studies. Since there are many connections still to be found, the rest of the exhibition is designed to be more open-ended for the viewer to explore and discover.
