Artist Char Szabo-Perricelli Joins Dialogues on Disability Speaker Series at Museum of disABILITY History
Presentation to focus on Photography, History and Social Attitudes Towards People with Disabilities
As part of its Dialogues on disABILITY Speaker Series, the Museum of disABILITY History is excited to welcome artist and photographer, Char Szabo-Perricelli. The event will take place on Friday, September 27, 2013, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Museum of disABILITY History, 3826 Main Street in Buffalo. The artist will host a candid Q& A, as well as a presentation that will focus on architecture and the ability of photography to preserve and uphold the integrity of historic structures. Szabo-Perricelli will also share observations on the JN Adam Developmental Center, as well as her reflections on social attitudes towards people with disabilities.
Szabo-Perricelli has a passion for architecture, history and the environment, interests which are immediately apparent in her exceptional body of work. Her images, which focus largely on the unnoticed and forgotten, have been published in print magazines, in professional online venues and as privately owned fine art prints. In several cases, her images are all that remain of historically and architecturally relevant places.
The event is $5 for adults and $2.50 for seniors, students and human service employees. The event fee includes admission to the Museum of disABILITY History. For more information or to register, call 716-629-3626.
