Disability Mural Project

 

Today I met Mr. Peter at the Student Union. He was working on the grabbing Mural on the first floor in Tower Hall that. The Mural was opened and installed on March 05, 2019 on Duluth’s main campus. In order to support and encourage such a noble and thought-provoking art exhibit, the campus gladly welcomed and promoted the same.

This collective artwork consists of more than 350 12″-by-12″ paintings created by persons with disabilities, along with their caregivers, family members, relatives and friends. This Disability Mural Project was just the Northland’s version of the initiative with currently 100 paintings on display.

St. Scholastica’s Dignitas program, which explores the depths of human expression and dignity primarily in context to the Benedictine values, is how the project got its origin. It is crucial part of the “Art as an Expression of Dignity” course offered on-campus for first-year students.

The mural is intended to let viewers, passer-by’s, and observers get a closer look at the unique perspectives and attitudes reflected by persons affected or touched by disability. This project is deliberated toward informing and educating folks about topics and themes including Persons First Language, Universal Design and The Social Model of Disability. I personally, thought the Mural provided a intimate insight into lives of people I would never meet but still could empathize with.

After chatting with Mr. Peter for a bit, he revealed that the local television station KBJR-TV Channel 6 covered the opening of the exhibition on the 5th itself. Also, Duluth Mayor and St. Scholastica alumna Emily Larson honored the Mural display with a visit.

The College shall further be hosting a free public reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 21, in the Student Union. However, the brilliant mural capturing nuances of different walk of life will be on display through March 28, 2019. Hope you all stop by and meet Mr. Peter1
