A work in stillness and slowness, ON DISPLAY HARVARD was presented at the Harvard Art Museums on December 3, 2023, in honor of International Day of Persons with Disabilities. (snobs._) and student collaborators from the Graduate School of Design (GSD) drew inspiration from that movement installation to create transformable objects titled Reflections: Harmonious Disarray, an exploration of the relationship between time, movement, and design.

The evening in the Calderwood Courtyard will feature the students’ artworks, as well as a community conversation with associate professor Sara Hendren, from Northeastern University, and John Peterson, curator of the Loeb Fellowship at the GSD. Both will respond to the works on view.

The event is the final occurrence that culminates a series of programs under Beyond Access: A Celebration of International Day of Persons with Disabilities at Harvard.

Beyond Access, a partnership between the Office for the Arts at Harvard Dance Program, led by Elizabeth Epsen, and (snobs._), led by GSD students Pin Sangkaeo and Benson Joseph, is a series of events including art-making and disability inclusion workshops, a movement installation, and conversation, which are designed to highlight disability as identity, culture, and an opportunity for innovation.

Free and open to the public, but capacity is limited and registration is required. Please register at ofadap.fas.harvard.edu. Please enter the museums at the 32 Quincy Street entrance to attend this program.
