Art reflects 'unique abilities'
Paintings, photographs, sculptures, and other works of art created by Wisconsin residents who have varying degrees of hearing loss, plus artwork by sign language interpreters, is on display at the Department of Health Services building in downtown Madison to commemorate Deaf History Month, celebrated March 13-April 15.
Linda Huffer, director of the Office Deaf and Hard of Hearing at DHS, said the exhibit is meant to give attendees a sense of the challenges of hearing loss.
"These amazing works of art reflect the richness and diversity of people who have a hearing loss and those who work with them,” Huffer said in a news release.
Secretary-elect Kitty Rhoades invited everyone to come and view the artwork at the DHS headquarters this month.
