DisABILITIES Museum talk on architecture planned for Friday

Niagara Gazette —

Artist and photographer Char Szabo-Perricelli will speak about architecture and how photography can preserve the integrity of historic structures as part of a Museum of disABILITY series Friday.

The series is called Dialogues on disABILITY, and this segment will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the museum, at 3826 Main Street in Buffalo. 

The artist will take questions and share observations on the JN Adam Developmental Center, as well as her reflections on social attitudes towards people with disabilities.

The J.N. Adam Developmental Center was an historic treatment facility for people with Tuberculosis, mental health, intellectual and developmental disabilities, opened in 1912 as the City of Buffalo’s Tuberculosis Hospital. It then became an extension of the Gowanda State Hospital and later was an adjunct to the West Seneca State School for individuals with developmental disabilities. The center closed in 1993.

Szabo-Perricelli 's work, which focuses largely on the unnoticed and forgotten, has been published in magazines, in professional online venues and as fine art prints. In some cases, her images are all that remain of historically and architecturally relevant places.

The event is $5 for adults and $2.50 for seniors, students and human service employees. The event fee includes admission to the Museum of disABILITY History. For more information or to register, call 629-3626. 

The Museum of disABILITY History is a project of People Inc., and its mission is to tell the stories of the struggles and triumphs of people with disabilities.
