To Russia with De'VIA Love

De'VIA stands for Deaf 'View Image Art. It is an art movement that a Deaf artist expresses identity and Deaf experiences in art.
More descriptions on De'VIA: http://www.deafart.org/Deaf_Art_/deaf_art_.html

Five USA Deaf Artists are cordially invited with honors by the Russian Federation, to attend the opening of the exhibition, the Saint-Petersburg International Art Exhibition, "The World is Heard by the Soul" in Saint Petersburg, Russia this August 29-September 2, 2013.

They will showcase the USA Deaf artists' De'VIA art work where they will share their Deaf experiences worldwide at the Smolny Institute/Lenin Museum.

The USA Deaf artists are David Call, Alexander Genievsky, Ellen Mansfield, Nancy Rourke and Alex Wilhite.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to seek fundings to pay for their visas and airfares to Russia. It costs $1400.00 for each artist to cover the expense. Your donation will be much appreciated.

Our mission:

The goal is to educate what De'VIA is about and how it can inspire the international Deaf artists to explore their own Deaf identity and experience. They can express themselves in their artwork. We want to build bridges with the Deaf artists, and to develop and spread awareness within their culture and language around the world. This goes to good cause.

We thank you for your support.
