In 2018, Oklahoma was ranked 47th nationally in overall education funding. After the massive teacher walkout that shuttered schools for two weeks, Sarah Agee, a self-described scrappy mom, decided that the lack of adequate funding for public schools was unacceptable and became an activist through art. Sarah organized a historic statewide art installation of portraits of 47 public school children to encourage citizens and politicians to vote pro-education.
