A new art exhibit celebrating the lives of people with Down syndrome opened recently in Kansas City, Missouri. The exhibit, titled “Just As I Am,” is a portrait gallery of a variety of people with Down syndrome.
According to the organisers, “the project’s aim is to create awareness and a better understanding of Down syndrome through raw, authentic stories” in order to change the way people view those with Down syndrome.
Alongside the portraits at the exibit are video interviews in which the individuals featured talk about their hopes and dreams. It’s another positive and very worthy initiative.
