The Art of Being L.C. – Film Screening and Q&A at City of Asylum

June 28, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Art of Being L.C. film screening and Q&A

The Art of Being L.C. will be screened for only the second time ever at City of Asylum on July 2. After the screening, there will be a conversation and Q&A with the filmmaker, Carl King, via Skype.

The Art of Being L.C. is a story of an artist freed from the cold, gray life of institutions to the warm colorful world of pastels and water colors.

In 1999, L.C. (Lois Curtis) stood before the U.S. Supreme Court to demand her right under the Americans with Disabilities Act to live in community rather than be “unjustifiably segregated” in institutions. Her successful argument before the Supreme Court became known as the Olmstead Decision. “Olmstead” secured Lois Curtis’ place in American History as a liberator for people with disabilities and set Lois free to discover her own gifts as an artist.
