“Get Outside!” Photo Exhibit in Meyer Hall
Photographic Art by John Rowe—A Grauer School Exhibit
(John Rowe and Stuart Grauer, curators)
When you visit our Grauer campus, please enjoy our special "Get Outside" Meyer Hall exhibit featuring eight alluring images created by photographer, filmmaker, explorer, humanitarian—and Grauer School alumni dad—John Rowe. This exhibit, curated by John Rowe and Stuart Grauer, celebrates The Grauer School campus-wide theme: “Get Outside.”
John Rowe’s transcendent photographic work documenting people, cultures, and nature has been awarded and featured worldwide, including in the 125th Anniversary of National Geographic Photography, the Power of Photography exhibition at the Annenburg Space Museum in Los Angeles, and many prominent museums worldwide. His richly illustrated fine art book "Omo Valley", with foreword by Steve McCurry, was released in Spring 2017.
These “Get Outside” prints are available for purchase by donations to The Grauer Foundation for Education, through the John Rowe Photography website: http://johnrowephoto.com/
Dr. Grauer takes a look forward to what school will look like in the coming years, based on lessons learned from the pandemic and changes to education that should be continued for current and future students.
The Visual & Performing Arts Department presented the 16th Annual Grauerpalooza Arts festival in a week-long series of virtual events on May 11-15. The arts are thriving at The Grauer School, regardless of the situations in which we find ourselves!
As a culminating project for their Civil Rights Movement unit, 11th graders completed "Voices of Social Justice" presentations. Each student investigated a "voice" from the Civil Rights era that was forgotten or misunderstood, and then crafted a piece of art that embodied that individual's story.
Grauer's Film Studies class hosted the Survivor TV show’s Co-Executive Producer, John Kirhoffer. Students learned how he started in the industry and through his hard work and perseverance, eventually became a television producer.
The Grauer School's weekly assemblies on Tuesdays are a special part of the school's community, and they begin with a message from Dr. Stuart Grauer. In this week's message, Dr. Grauer asked the students to think about what makes them intrinsically motivated to learn.
After learning this week of the passing of a friend, Dr. Grauer revisits times before the quarantine, to tell the story of a "survivor" who has some qualities we want to hang on to in these times.
