Curator’s Statement

The photographs in Distinctions of Blooms showcases the work of young artists with disabilities to illustrate the story of what the theme of bloom means to them. Each photo in this gallery reflects the individual’s focus, chosen by each artist who took part in a 7-week Disability/Visibility photography program.

It is the hope of the visual storytellers in this collaborative gallery exhibit that the blooms explore the idea that there will always be new beginnings, the feelings of hope, a new perspective on nature, and the experiences of growth in life.

– Effie Biliris, Disability/Visibility Program Facilitator
