ART | "To Deafhood with Love" 

Though Rochester has a considerable deaf population due to the presence of various institutions and resources (Rochester School for the Deaf and NTID, to name a couple), the deaf and hearing communities don't interact as much as they arguably could. Help assuage that reality and learn more about the experiences particular to deaf people at "To Deafhood with Love," currently on view at AMoR (Art Museum of Rochester, 610 Monroe Avenue).

The show features artworks by De'VIA artists Karen Christie, Patti Durr, Laurie Rose Monahan, (with Nancy Rourke from September 28-30). De'VIA is a form of Deaf Art which reveals the Deaf experience. It includes affirmative art that exhibits pride in sign language and Deaf culture as well as resistance art that explores the painful experiences of oppression or exclusion.

A closing reception will be held September 30, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, visit
