R2! Where ARE You? 

Wednesday, Oct 14 2009
Curator Francis Kohler is an instructor at the art gallery specializing in work made by adults with developmental disabilities. Of the recent show, "'Science' Fiction," he says, “The quotation marks around the word science in the title of the show refer to the various excerpts of text interspersed throughout the exhibition. These excerpts offer small bits of historical “science” regarding people with disabilities that most people living in 2009 would find laughable if not offensive.” The artists find inspiration in robots (Robby the Robot features prominiently) aliens, and other pop-culture sci-fi icons: We like the one that shows Mr. Spock, throwing his familiar sign and bearing the words "Live Long and Prosper."
