The Palo Alto Art Center hosts an online and in-person community day highlighting its current exhibition, “The Art of Disability Culture: Artists with disabilities dispelling myths, dissolving barriers and disrupting prejudice,” which is a celebration of disability experience.

The event, which takes place Sunday, Oct. 10, noon – 4p.m., both at the center and virtually, includes exhibition tours with curator Fran Osborne and performances by “Northern California’s only stuttering female comedian,” Nina G; blind performance artist Maia Scott; and Bay Area native African, Indigenous, Deaf, Disabled producer, choreographer, actor and dancer Antoine Hunter.

Every artist in the “Art of Disability Culture” show has one or more disabilities, whether visible or invisible, and the show offers works in a variety of media, including both traditional and digital portraiture, tactile paintings, video, installations, an interactive labyrinth, ceramics and a site-specific sculpture.

Visitors to Community Day can enjoy hands-on art activities, see Canine Companions up-close and purchase refreshments from Deaf-owned Neapolitan pizza truck Mozzeria and Ada’s Cafe coffee cart.
