Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley, ’80.

Ken Landauer makes furniture, sculpture, and cabinets, and is the founder of FN Furniture, which he opened in 2017 with the mission of creating inexpensive, zero-waste plywood furniture. Inspired by the Occupy Movement, his practice involves modern geometries, simplicity, sturdiness, yoga-inspired comfort, ecological materials, and local production. Ken’s furniture can be seen in numerous museums including The Tang Teaching Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, and the Dorsky Museum, New Paltz, New York. He lives and works in a house and studio he built in Stone Ridge, New York.
Levi Rogers received a B.S. in Environmental Conservation from the University of New Hampshire and an M.B.A. in Sustainability from Antioch University New England. Before coming to Skidmore, Levi worked in a variety of positions related to food production and preparation including head chef of a sustainably-sourced sushi restaurant, and in the field on a 14-acre vegetable farm. At Skidmore Levi works with students, staff, and faculty to design, implement, and manage initiatives and programs that advance the College’s sustainability efforts.
