Vibrant Accessibility Opens this June in Denver
Updated: May 15
I'm overjoyed to share official link for the #VibrantAccessibility art exhibition, slated to open this June in Denver!
Many thanks to Denver Arts and Venues for the opportunity to do so!
Here's the official announcement:
“Vibrant Accessibility” is a group show featuring artists Chloé Duplessis, Melanie Walker, John Bramblitt and Thomas “Detour” Evans. Each artist creates accessible artwork, especially for low vision and blind audiences.
• ABOUT THE ARTISTS •
Texas artist John Bramblitt, who is blind, taught himself to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, and through something called haptic visualization, which enables him to “see” his subjects through touch.
Chloe Duplessis Duplessis is a legally blind artist, curator and historian based in Metro Denver. She creates art and immersive experiences that elevate accessibility, equity and healing. Chloé is also the creator of Denver’s first accessible 'I VOTED" sticker that incorporates braille, sign language and low vision friendly colors.
Boulder artist and University of Colorado professor Melanie Walker lives with double vision and has been legally blind in one eye since birth. Melanie creates work that is dimensional, tactile, haptic and multi-sensory. Her new body of work is a collaboration with her father’s photographic art, layered with her own artwork, and printed on silk fabric.
"Vibrant Accessibility" opens June 8 and runs through August 27 at McNichols Civic Center Building, Second Floor, in the Boettcher Cultural Pavilion.
