Twenty years ago, the Oscar Award-winning short film, “King Gimp” leapt Towson University alumnus Dan Keplinger (‘98/’03/’07), an artist with cerebral palsy, into the spotlight. In recognition of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Towson University’s Department of Art. + Design, Art History, Art Education and Department of Occupational Therapy & Occupational Science partnered with the Towson Town Center to mount an exhibition of Keplinger’s work.
Keplinger uses head gear to work in various mediums. He does not use voice technology to speak but sends a powerful message through his art that denotes the objects of his daily existence.
Along with highlighting inclusion, adaptive solutions for participation in leisure and the arts, as well as awareness of accessibility options, will accompany the exhibit.
