Visual &  Performance Arts


The Museum of Deaf History, Arts & Culture® is excited and proud of it's newest exhibit - the Chuck Baird Art Gallery!  The Gallery showcases De'VIA art by Deaf Artists all over the world, as well as the National Youth De'VIA competition winners!  Come visit! 

Deaf View/Image Art, also known as De’VIA, is art that examines and expresses the Deaf Experience from a cultural, linguistic, and intersectional point of view.

This piece was completed in July 2013 by a group of De’VIA artists in Olathe, KS during the Downtown Olathe Art Festival.

The visual arts are art forms such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, filmmaking, literature, animation, digital art and architecture.

MDHAC will highlight the many visual art forms of well-known Deaf artists around the U.S.A. and other countries.  MDHAC strives to bring such notable Deaf persons to give presentations or classes at MDHAC or MDHAC sponsored events.  

Performance Arts

Performance Art is an art form in which artists combine visual art with dramatic movements of their bodies, often in relation to other objects, to convey artistic expression in front of an audience.

Annual Deaf Cultural Festival

MDHAC partners with the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in presenting the Annual Deaf Cultural Festival at NAMA!
