Deaf Art Collections: Introduction


The image "Unmask" on the left is by Uzi Buzgalo. This guide provides details about our Deaf Art collections in the RIT/NTID Deaf Studies Archives. You will note a diverse group of global Deaf artists, some of them our RIT/NTID alumni. In the left column are artists' names (last name, first name) in alphabetical order. Click on a name to see the image, the medium, size, the catalog record, related Archives finding aid, and other information. Note that some pieces are original art, and some are reproductions. Check out Art on Campus, which houses various digital artworks, including representative samples of Deaf Art.

Some biographical information on artists is available in our Harry Lang and Bonnie Meath Lang Research Materials for Deaf Persons in the Arts and Sciences. Patti Durr, Brenda Schertz, and Roz Rosen have donated the Deaf View/Image Art Collection. We have the original International Archive of Deaf Artists collection from Paula Grcevic and Barbara Fox and the revised Patti Durr NTID Deaf Art coursework and website material in the Deaf Art/Deaf Artists Collection. These collections are in our Deaf Studies Archives. 

The Deaf Art/Deaf Artist website is available for your review. Some videos and biographical information are from this website, courtesy of Patti Durr.
