Arts Rehabilitation Improvisational Therapy: Can Improvisation address cognitive deterioration of cognitive and social skills, in adult, homeless population? I will be working closely with my mentor Dr. Mitchell as he leads weekly Improv Sessions that cater to the above mentioned question. Art Therapy: How can fine art positively influence the memory and physicality of senior citizens? I will be working closely with the Harn Museum of Art's "Art for Life" program, and will compare their philosophy for therapeutic arts to my work with Dr. Mitchell. Arts Accessibility: American Sign Language: Aside from hired interpreters, what ways can American Sign Language, be incorporated into performance for ultimate accessibility and enjoyment for Deaf/Hard of Hearing patrons? I am very much interested in the integration of ASL into the entirety of a performance. As part of my research on this, I am Assistant Directing a production of Lee Blessing's "Two Rooms" this semester. This production is a joint effort between members of the UF School of Theatre and Dance, as well as members/students from the UF Communication Sciences Disorders. Emphasis is being placed on the synchronicity of the signs, movement, and communication between the actors and the audience. Art Beyond Sight: How can patrons of an Art Museum enjoy and appreciate all the Museum can offer? I look forward to exploring how and in what ways this question can be answered. I will be working closely with members of the Harn Museum of Art, to study the possibilities of fine art accessibility compared to that of performance accessibility.
