Virtual Event Virtual Event

Atlanta-based performance artist Jessica Blinkhorn focuses her work on acceptance through acknowledgement of difference, body positivity, disability education through experience and exposure, human sexuality, and story-telling.  In this artist talk, Blinkhorn will share about her 2021-2022 Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Exhibition performance, REVERENCE.

REVERENCEis part of a series of traveling performances that question accessibility across the American landscape wherein Blinkhorn becomes an object of reverence that serves as a reminder of one’s own limitations, inevitable mortality, and the systematic need to act now on accommodating current and future disabilities. As a wheelchair user, she likes to explore accessible environments that allow access to her independence. The BeltLine is an excellent example of repurposing the environment to allow for better access for all.
