In its nearly 40 year history, DEAF Media has offered a variety of events related to the visual and performing arts and aimed at celebrating Deaf Culture.
Effective January 1, 2012, with the retirement of Dr. Susan Rutherford from active producing, DEAF Media has successfully handed over production of our principal recurring events to our respective collaborating partners: the Oakland Museum of California; the San Francisco Fine Arts Museums (the deYoung and Legion of Honor); the California School for the Deaf; and the Deaf Studies Division of Ohlone College. We are very pleased that our productions are now part of those institutions and have retained the Deaf leadership that DEAF Media always provided and on which we prided ourselves.
