San Antonio February 02, 2021: Conversation 360 Dating & Disability Does the dating with a disability taboo exist simply because it’s not talked about enough?  Well, let’s talk about it!  For many, the dating world has become a cesspool of people looking for their “perfect” partner and only focusing on looks and their idea of the “perfect” partner. Add in the fact that a person has any kind of disability, and people tend to make a long list of assumptions. Dates can be fun whether a person is living with a disability or not. There’s lots to do that’s fun, accessible, and that everyone can enjoy. People living with a disability aren’t all going around looking for nurses; everyone wants an actual partner, someone to love. Intimacy is possible, even if it requires some adaptation.Join disABILITYsa in conversation as we get together to openly discuss the benefits, challenges, barriers, and pathways to engaging in ​the San Antonio community while addressing the way each topic impacts our selves and neighbors who live with a disability. 5:45pm https://www.disabilitysa.org/conversation-360.html (210) 704-7262

San Antonio Oct. 15-Jan. 24: “Robert Indiana: A Legacy of Love” A self-proclaimed “painter of signs,” Robert Indiana shaped a highly original body of work that explores American identity; his own personal history; and the power of abstraction, symbolism, and language. Surveying Indiana’s art in conversation with works by his contemporaries and successors, this exhibition examines the innovative foreground of text and symbol within visual art during the postwar era. Known as one of the leaders of the Pop art movement of the 1960s, Robert Indiana’s prolific career extends well beyond this period. The artist created paintings, prints, and sculptures characterized by clean lines and saturated color until his passing in 2018.
