TAM: language suggestion
As you all know, Chuck Close is a person with a disability as he is paralyzed and uses a wheelchair.
The correct language to use, is to always put the “person” first: a person with a disability, a person in a wheelchair, etc.
If you ever have a question or issue concerning an exhibition or artwork, please let me know. I am happy to find an answer for you or discuss any problems you may have. The ideal situation is always that someone asks the question and that the museum’s expectations are clear.
Thanks for your time!
