Judith Scott/Readings from Entwined & Screening of Outsider

When: Tue., Sept. 20, 7-9 p.m. 2016

Down Syndrome and deafness in 1950 consigned Judith Scott to a state institution for 35 nightmare years before her twin sister obtained her release. Once discarded by society, she responded to opportunities at Creative Growth Art Center by becoming a world-famous fiber artist. “Entwined”, a book by her sister Joyce, explores the twins’ closeness and the profound impact of Judith’s extraordinary life and remarkable creativity. Copies will be available for sale. Also on this program, Betsy Bayha’s film, Outsider, is an intimate portrait of a compelling, eccentric and talented individual who prevailed in the face of daunting odds.

Price: Suggested donation $5. No one turned away.
