National World War II Reunion
During the last week of May, leading up to Memorial Day, the Smithsonian Institution hosted the National World War II Reunion, an event drawing thousands of people to the National Mall for four days of remembrance and honor for the war veterans and those who lost their lives. The war effort on the home front was included as well: One photograph showed three students from the American School for the Deaf standing proudly in front of the Hartford, Conn., chapter of the American Red Cross, holding a coverlet they had made for the soldiers. The photo illustrates the key role that deaf people played during the war, working in industries, non-factory jobs, and as volunteers. (This image was also used in the “History Through Deaf Eyes” exhibition and was shared courtesy of the American School for the Deaf.)

2004 International Very Special Arts arts Festival
The Washburn Arts Gallery was one of several venues in Washington, D.C., for the 2004 International VSA (Very Special Arts) arts Festival, held June 9 to 12. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the organization, which was created for people with disabilities to learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts. According to VSA’s website, nearly five million people with disabilities participate in VSA arts programs every year through affiliates in 49 states and the District of Columbia and 64 countries. Here, Kentucky visitors (from left) Mary O’Neal, Tatyana Borisova, and Ginny Miller discuss Los Angeles, Calif., artist Barbara Romain’s painting “Mind Over Matter.” Romain, who has a retinal degeneration disease, relies heavily on language and music, creating weavings, patterns, and textual layers within her paintings.
