The Golisano Foundation presented the premiere of the photographic exhibition, Positive Exposure - Change How You See, See How You Change, from October 2-18, 2015 at George Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY.
This exhibition was created in celebration of the Golisano Foundation's 30th anniversary and featured the premiere of twenty portraits of people living with intellectual disabilities. It provided the opportunity to see beyond all labels or disabilities, presenting our ambassadors as the beautiful, vibrant individuals that they are.
The exhibition also included new images from the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, and a collection of images from Positive Exposure's permanent collection.
Positive Exposure drew record crowds. The exhibition in part will be on view at other locations. For dates and times see News.
