ARDSLEY, N.Y. -- A nationally acclaimed photo exhibit highlighting women with various physical challenges will be on display in Ardsley from March 10 to April 10 at Acorda Therapeutics, 420 Saw Mill River Road.
The exhibit, called the Raw Beauty Project NYC, was recently shown in the American Contemporary Art Galleries in New York City. It has been reviewed by The Huffington Post, New York Daily News, and is currently featured in the March issue of "O, the Oprah Magazine."
Founded by model and activist Wendy Crawford with support from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, the Raw Beauty Project NYC uses intimate and often surprising photographs to highlight many of the misconceptions and stereotypes of women with physical challenges.
In this series of powerful photographs, women living and thriving with disability show their strength, perseverance, and beauty and share their unique stories of triumph with the world.
Crawford was an up and coming model when a collision with a drunk driver in 1984 left her without the use of her legs. In the years following, she has been a leading voice for women with physical challenges, and has been profiled in several national publications and on television programs.
