Sarah Gail Luther + Madison Audubon Society - Faville Grove Sanctuary


Sarah Gail Luther

Sarah Gail Luther is a Milwaukee-based artist who explores and documents the familiar, the average, or the forgotten. The results of these inquiries manifest in drawings, performances, public events, and distribulate objects. Through her work, she strives to build an understanding of the subject, not necessarily to elevate but to appreciate it intricacies, humor, or humanity.
