Zoé Murphy


Zoé Murphy's article "Bonding Over Art" about OS40 and their Oxbow community experience is featured in the Summer/Fall 2019 issue of Inside Napa Valley magazine.

"At The Oxbow School, I found a family of different, yet like-minded people. I now have and am part of a support system that stretches across the United States and encompasses all Oxbow students past or present. At The Oxbow School, I found people that helped shape me into a better more open person. From the supportive staff to the incredible student body, they built me into a better version of myself. Oxbow pushed me out of my comfort zone and showed me a whole new world. I would not be the person I am right now without this experience."

Mary Lacy


Mary Lacy was interviewed this summer on Vermont Public Radio by host John Dillon for "Making Things In Public: Muralist and Mosiac-Maker Mary Lacy" as part of their Young at Art series.

"Mary Lacy is a Jericho native who thinks big. She paints outdoor murals: giant images, usually of nature, that adorn urban landscapes. Her paintings of fish, hummingbirds and bees splash across buildings and along byways in vibrant color."

Daniele Frazier


Daniele Frazier's most recent exhibition Small, Medium, Large was held this summer in Woodbury, CT.

"From sketch to tabletop model to work that dwarfs the artist, creating public art necessarily articulates stages in time: beginning, middle and end; conceived, constructed, created. The manifestation of large, durable work similarly spans artistic and technical approach: the artist must employ drafting, architectural model-making, physics, and engineering to achieve a “finished” project. The resulting mental gymnastics – the movement from “small” to “medium” to “large” – inform the title of this show." – Caitlin Tully

Amelia Bond


Amelia Bond is working as an intern this summer at the Kidd Lab at UC Berkeley. The lab studies knowledge acquisition throughout infancy and childhood. They use computational models and behavioral experiments to differentiate between competing learning theories and measure how infants and children learn and play. Their results are quantitative theories about how young learners interact with the world around them. The theories are used to develop learning technologies for children, parents, and clinical practitioners. Amelia’s role is to design posters and flyers and host events at children’s centers to recruit children and their families to participate in the studies!

She is also volunteering as a Community Reading Buddy at three different preschools in Oakland with the Aspire Education Project. Along with the other reading buddies, is working one-on-one with preschoolers to help them develop early literacy skills and a love for reading!
