Nothing is ever really black and white, is it.
VSA arts Massachusetts is sponsoring NY Portraits by Gordon Sasaki. NY Portraits is an exhibition of photographs documenting working New York City artists with disabilities. The photographs are currently on exhibit at VSA arts of Massachusetts’ Open Door Gallery at Boston’s NonProfit Center.
Sasaki’s photographs include visual and performance artists, dancers, actors, musicians, filmmakers, and writers.
Gordon Sasaki has exhibited nationally and internationally, including in Belgium, Germany, Japan, and Spain. He has received awards from the Pollock Krasner Foundation, The Puffin Foundation, The New York Foundation for the Arts, the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and Arts, PX3 de la Photographia in Paris, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Sasaki is a dedicated proponent of inclusion through the arts. He teaches in the education department at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. He also works with VSA arts of Massachusetts in a program preparing educators to use the arts to accomplish the goals of Universal Design for Learning, an approach to instruction that anticipates obstacles to learning such as dyslexia or developmental disability and provides effective alternative ways to accomplish the lesson.
