Kurt Weston is a legally blind creative photographer. At a very young age Kurt Weston was fascinated by photography. "I remember I had a huge collage of photographs I had cut out of old National Geographic and Life magazines. It took up practically an entire wall in my bedroom. I used to lie in bed at night dreaming of the day I could be a photographer." Click here to see his artwork.
The 10th Anniversary edition of the annual CORE exhibit is brought to you by Arts and Services for Disabled, Inc. and the National Arts and Disability Center of UCLA. In its 10th year, CORE intersects with artists nationally and internationally, while continuing to expand its reach by offering key new components this year. In addition to the high quality of visual arts that will be showcased, CORE 10 will also include a complete evening of live performances, a panel discussion bringing together diverse voices from the arts and disability advocacy communities, and a community workshop event inviting the public to take part in an interactive arts experience.
CORE continues its mission to provide space and context for artists, community members, and arts and disability advocates to build common bonds and promote visibility through a diverse arts forum.
