Library Company & Gershman Y Partner for Archival Exhibition and 
Performance Art Event on April 20

Visual art and performance art come together in a special program 
presented jointly by the Gershman Y and the Library Company of 
Philadelphia on Wednesday, April 20.  The evening begins at 5:00 PM at 
the Library Company of Philadelphia (1314 Locust Street) with an 
exhibition viewing and reception for*/Common Touch: The Art of the 
Senses in the History of the Blind/*, a multi-sensory exhibition curated 
by Philadelphia installation artist *Teresa Jaynes*. /Common Touch/ 
explores the nature of perception through original works by Jaynes and 
historical collections that document the education of the blind in the 
19th century.
Following the viewing and reception, the evening moves to the Gershman Y 
(corner of Broad and Pine Streets) at 6:30 PM for a live performance by 
the renowned *Terry Galloway* of */You Are My Sunshine - A Kind of Love 
Story/*.  Galloway offers her humorous perspective on life after 
receiving a cochlear implant and being thrust into a world of sound. 
/You Are My Sunshine/ is a comic, sometimes moving, sometimes profane 
exploration of what happens to a woman after she literally regains her 
senses.  The performance will be followed by a discussion with Galloway 
and *Haverford College Professor Kristin Lindgren, PhD*.  Lindgren was a 
key organizer of Haverford College’s 2012 exhibition, /What Can a Body 
Do?/ which explored disability through the visual arts, poetry, and 
Admission to the exhibition viewing and reception, as well as the 
performance, is free, but advance registration is required by calling 
215-545-4400 <tel:215-545-4400> or visiting GershmanY.org
