Brody Hagestad won't be the only disabled student to feature in the Department of Education's Washington D.C. exhibit. Chosen from among thousands of prospective students, Brody was chosen as Wisconsin's representative in the multi-state exhibition featuring self-portraiture from disabled students.

Todd third grader Brody Hagestad’s artwork will be on display in Washington, D.C.

His art teacher, Janelle Caputo-Logterman, entered his work last year in a VSA’s International Art Program for Children with Disabilities. Brody’s artwork was then selected to be displayed at the Department of Education in Washington, D.C., this November. Brody will be representing Wisconsin in the exhibit, and his drawing will become part of their permanent collection.

In the contest, children were encouraged to create a self-portrait that illustrated who they are and who they will be. Brody drew himself as a construction worker, saying it was his dream to become one.
