Exciting news! The City of West Hollywood's Art on the Outside committee approved Opulent Mobilit7 2021 as one of their projects! The exhibit will be held in October 2021 during Disability Awareness month. More details to come as they develop.
The image is from a current Art On the Outside project by Scott Froschauer. If you're cruising down Santa Monica Blvd. at Holloway Drive between now and June of 2022, you can see his RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE street signs in person.
Bit by bit the Opulent Mobility 2020 artist talk segments are going up on YouTube. Since I'm in the process of a big move, things are going slowly, but there are only so many hours in a day!
Click on the YouTube link to hear Ellice Patterson of Abilities Dance Boston talking about adaptive dance, ableism in the dance community, inclusive description, and collaboration. While you're there, you can check out the six segments of the artist talk that are up and running.
And hey. Take care of yourselves out there.

I re*make mobility devices and materials and give them new lives. Sometimes I staple drape.
