De’VIA: Manifesto Comes of Age

Until 16th February 2020

The De’VIA exhibition marks the 30th anniversary of an artistic movement. First created during the 1980s, this movement seeks to actively explore the experience of deafness through a unique and knowledgeable new lens.

Rochester is noted as having one of the largest communities of deaf individuals in the United States. This is a fitting exhibition for anyone who wants to understand more about this disability, as well as a chance to see some truly special art.
