The Lafayette Public Library is hosting Via’s Portraits of Ability: Stories of Independence and Inspiration at 775 Baseline Rd, Lafayette, CO 80026. The show is free and open to the public during regular library hours through Thursday, January 2, 2020.
The 15 photos in the exhibit capture the emotional stories of people served by Via. Each photo-portrait communicates the spirit and vibrant sense of who each person is — beyond their mobility challenges — as seen through the eyes of New York portrait artist, Sophie Klafter.
The show employs the power of visual storytelling to transform personal narrative into public meaning and demands the audience to ask what are we doing to support these lives? The photos capture the passions, sadness, hardships, and joy of every single one of the 15 people in the portrait stories. These portraits and the accompanying narratives provide a sometimes poignant, often inspirational glimpse into the lives of the individuals that Via serves.
