 Product Description

To say that Ann Silver is a remarkable person is to miss the mark. While barely 20 years old, Ann Silver, along with a few others, started the Deaf Art Movement. By age 40, she had created an international symbol of sign language interpreting, and had her design work published on over 2 000 book covers. Five years later, after rededicating her life to studio art, Silver had completed over 150 pieces and defined a new art genre: Deaf Pop Art. This book leads the reader through the life and art of this incredible Deaf artist. [James W. Van Manen; (2014) 199 pages; soft cover]

About the Deaf Artist Series

This series brings attention to the artwork and lives of contemporary Deaf visual artists who are important to the Deaf Art Movement and De'VIA (Deaf View/image Art). These are Deaf artists who place a perspective on their artwork which relates to American Sign Language, Deaf heritage and Deaf culture. Each book contains biography, art interpretation and some art description. The availability of this important series offers readers an insight into the world of culturally Deaf people through their artists. Furthermore, the series serves as a useful guide for art historians, curators, and docents in recognizing Deaf Art/De-VIA's contribution to American art.
