Reception: Friday, August 4, 6:30pm-8:30pm

Mariam is a visual artist, mouth painter, speaker and advocate for people with spinal cord injury. At age 20 she became a victim of gun violence. The injury left her with limited function in her hands and permanently unable to walk. And so began her new artistic journey as a “mouth painter.” Come Friday, August 4 from 6:30pm-8:30pm to meet Mariam and walk the McCord Gallery where her work will be on display starting Friday, July 28 – Friday, August 25.
