Matheny’s Arts Access Program will be joining NJ Disabilities Film Festival. This is the largest festival in the country dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with different disabilities. “Getting Up” will be screened at 5:30pm, Free Admission. About the Film: HOW DOES A FALLEN MAN GET BACK UP? Tony ‘TEMPT” Quan is a legendary LA graffiti artist, social activist and publisher. In 2003, he was disgnosed with ALS. BUT HIS MIND AND CREATIVE SPIRIT ARE STILL INTACT. In 2009, Mick Ebeling and his “Not Impossible Foundation” brought international hackers and artists to Los Angeles to attempt the impossible: invent a low-cost, open source DIY device that allows Tempt to once again creat art, using the only part of his body that still moves, his eyes. After months of harrowing trial and error, The EYEWRITER was born and Tempt was once able to create art. Visit artsaccessprogram.org and reelabilities.org for more information.
