Accessibility 2007 was simply incredible. 9 fashion designers and 8 sculptors from all over the United States came to our small town of Sumter, South Carolina to make art and designs from found, recycled, and/or repurposed materials. It received a fair amount of press, but the entire month long event was worth every minute. My involvement included curating in the 8 sculptors and partially helping them find materials. The main credit for getting the ball rolling with materials goes to David Shoemaker, the tech/theatre/lighting guy at the Sumter County Cultural Center aka Patriot Hall. I also designed and maintained the website, which I am pretty proud of. It includes in progress photos and videos as well as artists statements, bios and much more.
