Opening Thursday, August 5th, from 4PM - 5PM
Join Disability Lead for a virtual conversation with Chicago artists Riva Lehrer and Sandie Yi whose visual and multimedia work has explored and celebrated disability culture and the disabled body. Both artists have redefined what it means to be disabled and, through their art, have offered a rich understanding of the beauty and creativity that is inherent in disabled lives. Riva and Sandie will provide an accessible presentation of their work and then join Risa Rifkind, Disability Lead’s Director of Civic Engagement and Marketing, for a conversation on how they use their work to advance, advocate and show the beauty and power of the disability experience.
All event attendees will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a copy of Golem Girl. Up to 10 books will be given away and recipients must live in the United States. Winners will be contacted on August 5.
ASL interpretation, Spanish translation, and live captioning (with a streaming link) will be provided for this free virtual event. Additional accommodation requests can be submitted via RSVP.
