ANTI-COVID: IMAGES FROM THE PANDEMIC: A NEW PHOTO EXHIBIT BY PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL & DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES

Opening April 27, 2022 at the Metro Community Health Center in the Bronx, New York, the exhibition features 16 evocative photographs highlighting the challenges and communities of people receiving their rehabilitation services during COVID. 

Each participant is a member of the ‘Progressive Visions Photo Club,’ started in 1997 to help build independence and skills by introducing people with disabilities to photography. Over the years, photographers have had their work exhibited in galleries throughout New York City and Long Island, and were featured on NY1 in multiple segments. The program now encompasses groups throughout the Bronx at CP Unlimited day sites.

 

The exhibition will be on display at Metro Community Health Center (MCHC) at 979 Cross Bronx Expressway Service Rd., Bronx, NY 10460, from April 27-May 25, 2022 with an opening reception scheduled for Wednesday, April 27 2022 from 3:00-5:00 PM. 

“This exhibit represents an achievement both for the participants and the advancement of the CP Unlimited mission. The Progressive Visions Photo Club is an artistic outlet that deepens creativity among our individuals, and this expressive display shows their truly unique perspectives and reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Joseph Pancari, Executive Director of Metro Services at CP Unlimited.
