Sverdlovsk Medical College to showcase photos by American youth
The exhibit will raise awareness about the capabilities of people with Down syndrome.
The exhibit will include 10 to 12 20x30 inch displays of Meredith's photos, featuring various images of people and animals with captions. His specialty is close-up photographs.
The exhibit will be coordinated by the United State's State Department in Yekaterinburg as part of Russia's celebration of World Down Syndrome Day on March 21. The exhibit will also include Russian artists with Down syndrome.
Meredith was invited to participate in the exhibition by the medical college's director after meeting with the boy's mother, Stephanie Meredith, author of the Canister booklet, "Understanding a Down Syndrome Diagnosis," and Amy Allison, the director of the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City, who were invited by the U.S. State Department to make presentations to charities, government officials and academic leaders about how opportunities for people with Down syndrome have improved in the United States over the past 30 years.
This year marks the first time that March 21 will be recognized by the United Nations as World Down Syndrome Day.
