Trio of exhibits slated for NTID

Three exhibits are slated to open Jan. 27 at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.

The first exhibit runs through March 4. It is focused on “(Re)Invention,” a traveling exhibition from the Kennedy Center which is designed to give visibility to the work of artists with disabilities throughout the United States, officials said. 
“The aim of this exhibit is to broaden our understanding of disability and the arts and to create new contexts,” said Tabitha Jacques, Dyer Arts Center director.
Victoria Dugger, one of the artists of the exhibit, will be at the center for an artist workshop on March 3, along with hard-of-hearing RIT alumna and artist Rea Walsh, officials said.
A second exhibit includes work from faculty artists in RIT/NTID’s Visual Communication Studies Department. That exhibit runs from Jan. 27 to Feb. 25.
