Hazlo Ahora (Do it Now) Photography Exhibit
The Biennal is a month-long cultural celebration of innovation, imagination and the artistic achievement of the Western Hemisphere, hosted by the City of Denver. The exhibit also is a fitting way to recognize the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Hazlo Ahora invited photographers and the disabled to demonstrate their art and creativity in the ABC of Disability. The alphabet was chosen because these are symbols that humans use to make sense of what is happening around us, in a manner by which we understand that differences exist and are present in every moment. Like humans, no letter is the same as another and the differences enrich our communication and our lives with one another. The ABC of Disability recognizes the values that promote a culture for people with disabilities and highlights their development and inclusion in society.
This Exhibit has been brought to Denver by the Mexican Consulate, Cross Communities Coalition and Regis University’s Center for the Common Good. Supporting this effort are the Denver Public Library, the Denver Art Museum, The Denver Foundation and the Biennial of the Americas.
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
