Daren Brubaker, a member of the Fine Arts Department and Brophy's head swim coach, was named a 2023 Arts Hero by OnMediaAZ. Daren, a local mixed-media artist who creates under the name of D. Roy Brubaker, builds a community component into his art shows by having them benefit a diverse group of people who generally reside on the margins of society. "I'm a firm believer in having your talents help others," he tells OnMediaAZ.
Daren also talks about his disparate occupations as a swim coach, teacher and artist. "I'm a tentmaker," he states. Read Daren's OnMediaAZ profile here.
