12 Artists with Disabilities


Deaf by the time she was 12, Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie performs with great orchestras around the world. Born with a severe form of cerebral palsy, Ireland's Christy Brown became a well-known writer and painter. Internationally renowned British-Nigerian sculptor Yinka Shonibare is paralyzed on one side of his body. This book spotlights 12 artists from around the world who followed their dreams despite their disabilities. Each chapter includes attention-grabbing photos and fascinating facts. Sidebars go beyond the basics, and prompts invite readers to think for themselves.
