“Interesting…” that single word immediately recalls the memory of Joe Rogers in
the minds of his friends, family and students. A keen observer, Joe found many
things in life… interesting.
Best known as a professor of Anthropology and Sociology, Joe Rogers taught
generations of Big Bend Community College students to better understand the
study of humans and human interactions. Perhaps only known by those closest to
him, Joe was also a talented photographer, memorializing the inherent beauty of
people, places and things in print and silkscreen.
Through this exhibition of Joe Roger’s artistic life’s work, we hope to see our world
as Joe saw it: the potholes and water, the vast landscape, rock formations, people
and details that make up the Columbia Basin he called home for over 40 years.
