Join Deaf community advocate Devon Whitmore for a virtual tour of CAM’s exhibitions in American Sign Language (ASL). This free program is offered in collaboration with DEAF Inc. to celebrate Deaf Culture and to increase communication accessibility to arts in the region.
This event will be held as a Zoom meeting, with ASL and closed captioning available. It will include ASL interpretation provided by student interpreters from St. Louis Community College.
Originating from Detroit, Devon was exposed to the Center of Creative Studies and the connecting Detroit Institute of Art from an early age. Though unable to hear while wandering through the museum, he sensed Detroit’s cacophony of sounds and imagined music in Diego Rivera’s all-encompassing Detroit Industry fresco murals. Engrossed in all forms of art, producing his own sketches, designs, paintings, and sculptures, Devon ended up realizing photography was his forte—the field of work that would become his career. He received his BA in Photography from Columbia College-Chicago. Devon’s photos have appeared in ABCNEWS.com, Chicago Magazine, New City, Deaf Life; KISSFIST Magazine, Chicago Tribune Magazine, Towery Publishing: Chicago Heart & Soul of America and various others. His works have been exhibited at the National Technical Institute of the Deaf, School of Visual Communications Careers Student Honors Show, Columbia College-Chicago, Student Honors Show, Oo-La-la Lounge solo exhibit; Gallery 312 group exhibit, and Deaf Way Illinois II Deaf Artists Exhibit. His most recent involvement in the arts was being a juror for National Technical Institute of the Deaf, Dyer Arts Center’s Color to the Cube exhibit.
