(dis)ABLED BEAUTY: the evolution of beauty, disability, and ability

(dis)ABLED BEAUTY: the evolution of beauty, disability and ability features a collection of hearing devices, canes, prosthetics, apparel and other assistive devices which make their wearer fashionable, abled and to some degree . . . superhuman. This exhibition showcases the innovative ideas and designs of apparel, prostheses, and assistive devices that contribute to the destigmatization of disability.

One in five individuals in the U.S. has a disability. Some of their stories have been a part of CMU. Our contributors to this exhibition are current and former CMU students, faculty and staff, Michiganders, and some from the broader commnity. Members of the disability community are activists, artists, scholars, and leaders who are part of a broader and more diverse regional, national, and international community. Their stories consitiute an important part of our collective story and give meaning to and provide insight into both our past and present. The voices of those with disabilities are thus highlighted in this exhibition, celebrating the Disability Rights Movement's slogan, "Nothing about us without us."

Dr. Stacey R. Lim, Central Michigan University and Dr. Tameka N. Ellington, Kent State University - Guest Curators
