Synopsis:

List of free and discounted entry to the arts, museums, cinemas, and other cultural institutions for persons with disabilities.

Main Digest

Disabled World recently received an email from Adrian Edwards-Smith. Adrian recently began an Advocacy for free and discounted entry to the Arts in NYC.

Upon reading Adrian's accomplishment we considered his work would benefit many people with disabilities and approached him in regards to publishing his work on Disabled World. Adrian agreed, and the following list highlights his personal successes since June 2018, when he first began an advocacy for free and/or discounted entry to the Arts in NYC - despite local politicians, who considered it a silly idea. Adrian ignored them, and went ahead with his mission on his own; unpaid, with no support, and personally negotiated everything listed below.

Adrian wrote: "Sure, I have a huge list, and my Advocacy has been successful - but it was a war, and still is - NOTHING was easy... and not one Politician or Elected Official stood next to my proposals for the Disabled. Not one... ...The reality. The truth. The sad facts. This is America, and NYC... The reality..."

However, Adrian succeeded in his on-going mission as the list below proves!

Note: Caregivers for the disabled always enter for free.

The Thinker is a bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin. The work shows a male figure sitting on a rock with his chin resting on one hand as though deep in thought - often used as an image to represent philosophy.
