De’VIA Art: Art from and for the Deaf

De’VIA (short for Deaf View/Image Art) is an art form created by Deaf artists to showcase the Deaf experience and culture. I originally learned about it through my ASL classes, but I think the art is very interesting even for those how don’t know the culture.

The art has a big focus on hands and facial expressions, two very important visual cues to the language itself. I highly recommend people to check out De’VIA art if possible. I know sometimes they do exhibits from Deaf artists in Center City; I am mainly thinking about one that happened around May this year that took place in City Hall.
