Laura Cohen checks out art work by Riva Lehrer during the opening reception for Lehrer’s show in the lobby of Magill Library at Haverford College on Friday, October 28, 2016. Lehrer, a portrait artist, anatomist, and disability activist, is motivated by asking how socially devalued bodies are made visible and how portrait-making can intervene in processes of aesthetic, psychological, and sociocultural revaluation. During the opening reception, Lehrer had a Public Conversation with Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Professor of English, Emory University. Photo by Leigh Taylor
