Disability Rights Group Tackling the Big Picture
Farmington; Patch - almost 5 years
When a group of citizen activists got together to push for increased accessibility in Farmington, it found success and moved on to tackle other projects.

The group, a grass-roots offshoot of the town’s Human Relations Commission, is teaming up with UConn Health Center to sponsor and host a community conversation that is meant to engage participants on the subjects of inclusion and awareness of disability issues. The gathering, jointly sponsored by CC=A and the A.J.

  • 1975
    Age 37
    Gross was the author of a controversial set of nude images taken in 1975 of a then ten-year-old Brooke Shields with the consent of her mother, Teri Shields, for the Playboy publication Sugar 'n' Spice.
    More Details Hide Details The images portray Shields nude, standing and sitting in a bathtub, wearing makeup and covered in oil. Two of the images were full-frontal. In 1981 Shields attempted to prevent further use of the photographs but in 1983 a US Court ruled that a child is bound by the terms of the valid, unrestricted consents to the use of photographs executed by a guardian and that the image did not breach child pornography laws. In ruling, the presiding Judge stated: "The issue on this appeal is whether an infant model may disaffirm a prior unrestricted consent executed on her behalf by her parent and maintain an action pursuant to section 51 of the Civil Rights Law against her photographer for republication of photographs of her. We hold that she may not." A photograph of one of those original photographs was produced by American artist Richard Prince, an artist famous for his "reproduction photography." Prince called his version "Spiritual America," after a 1923 photograph by Alfred Stieglitz that depicts the genitals of a workhorse. In 2009 "Spiritual America" was removed from the Tate Modern gallery exhibition called Pop Life: Art in a Material World after protesters described the image as "obscene" and a "magnet for pedophiles," although it had been shown in New York's Guggenheim Museum in 2007 without incident. Gross has stated that "The photo has been infamous from the day I took it and I intended it to be" and that he was "disappointed but not surprised” by the Tate's decision to remove the photograph.
