Here's a fun project that I was happy to be involved with. In 1990, people with disabilities pulled themselves up the U.S. Capitol steps and demanded equal rights. An act that led to Americans with Disabilities Act. To help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ADA, I teamed up with Google to create 10 portraits that honoured leaders and activists in the fight for equality for people with disabilities. The murals were featured at historical sites throughout Washington, D.C. on stairs at the National Portrait Gallery, National Museum of American History, Woodrow Wilson Plaza, Newseum, Gallaudet University and the Carnegie Library. Poster versions of the pieces were also featured in Los Angeles to coincide with the Special Olympics. I also created the backgrounds and brush lettering for the pieces.
