Project (or Mission?): Celebrating the ADA
SCULPTURE OF ACTIVIST JENNIFER KEELEN
July 26, 2020 is the 30th anniversary of the passage of the American Disabilities Act. In March 1990, at 8 years old, Denver resident Jennifer Keelen climbed the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building without use of her disabled legs while participating in the Capitol Crawl. The Crawl and its sit-in finally forced the signage of the ADA. However, today Jenn still struggles to gain and protect rights as a person faced with disability.
The exhibit of Jennifer's sculpture will include stories, facts, photographs, and a community response feature.
Gina will collaborate with former Senator Tom Harkin (proponent of the ADA) and the Harkin Institute to secure exhibition opportunities and obtain media coverage.
