This summer, the University of Oregon's Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA) in Eugene, Oregon exhibits "Brilliant and Resilient: Celebrating the Power of Disabled Women Activists."
The Brilliant and Resilient photo exhibit features a collection of professional images by world-renowned photographers and personal stories of an unparalleled group of women representing a variety of cultures, countries and disabilities. All are alumni of MIUSA's Women's Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD). These emerging and established leaders have used determination, drive, and resilience to confront discrimination and make unique contributions in their communities and in the world.
The exhibit is photographed by Brian Lanker, Darcy Kiefel, and Paola Gianturco. View the slideshow at the bottom of this page for a glimpse of select portraits.
