2nd Annual No Limits Celebration & Kick-Off at ISBVI

On July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed and signed into law to ensure people with disabilities have equal opportunities to employment, public accommodations, transportation, and commercial facilities. While the ADA has provided significant physical access for individuals with disabilities, the No Limits Arts Series aims to strengthen inclusiveness and remove social barriers in the arts for individuals with disabilities. Every year on the anniversary weekend of the ADA, we celebrate this historic moment.

Join us as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ADA on Saturday, July 25, 2020 featuring Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Paxton has an eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, and make it real. In addition, he mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. He's a world-class talent and a unique character who is "virtually the only music-maker of his generation—playing guitar, banjo, piano and violin, among other implements—to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and ‘30s." He has toured the world, performing with Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon, Edgar Winter - including a night to remember at a sold out Carnegie Hall.

No Limits Celebration Festivities Include:

6:00PM - 7:00PM: A Pre-Concert Reception with heavy appetizers, complimentary drinks and special a cappella performance by No Limits arts partner, Capital City Chorus.

7:00PM – 7:30PM: Seating in the ISBVI Auditorium

8:00PM:  Concert featuring Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton

9:30PM - 10:00PM:  A Post-Concert Reception with complimentary drinks, desserts and a Q and A with Jerron Paxton and Emcee Kathy Nimmer (additional fee).*
