Mother, Mãe featured on Light Leaked -- an online photography journal that creates dialogue about photographic creation, both conceptually and in business, through features and interviews. Light Leaked is inspired to create exposure and a community to emerging and established photographers. Four photographers are interviewed and featured each month.
The museum is dedicated to providing art education programs and projects for children and families in rural Northeast and Middle Georgia communities. Using Georgia artist Steffen Thomas's work as examples of creative expression the museum provides opportunities for children to develop their own talents, a deeper understanding of themselves, of their connections to all living things and of their responsibility for preserving the environment.
