About the Exhibit: Monet: The Early Years will be the first major US exhibition devoted to the initial phase of Claude Monet’s (French, 1840–1926) career. Through approximately sixty paintings, the exhibition demonstrates the radical invention that marked the artist’s development during the formative years of 1858 to 1872. This exhibition is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Monet’s mastery before Impressionism, and includes paintings that are profoundly daring and surprising. Depictions of moments both large and small, with friends and loved ones, in the solitude of forests and fields and in the quiet scenes of everyday, offer new revelations about an artist that many consider to be ubiquitous.
Heard about the ABLE Act? Curious about how ABLE accounts and special needs trusts could interact with SSI or other financial benefits?
The Center for Independence of Individuals with Disabilities (CID), in partnership with attorney Mark Gilfix from the estate planning law firm Gilfix and La Poll Associates LLP, want you to learn about these financial resources!
Join us for a FREE seminar discussing how ABLE accounts and special needs trusts give you leverage to create long-term savings for yourself or a loved one living with a disability.
Space is limited; call today to reserve your spot for this presentation!

My Flesh and Blood (Dir. Jonathan Karsh, 2003, 1:13)
My Flesh and Blood takes an in-depth at the Tom Family which mostly consists of children that were rejected by their birth families due to mental or physical disabilities. The film is broken up into seasons starting out with family taking part in Halloween in the fall and ending in the Summer of the upcoming year. The family's unconventional home-life becomes a foundation for the supports, challenges, and successes that they face daily.
The Commission on Disabilities along with various County staff, visited Palo Alto's fully accessible Magical Bridge Playground. The pictures above represent what true equal access looks like! San Mateo County plans to build a similar accessible playground in 2018.
On September 23rd, the San Bruno Branch Office held a ribbon-cutting mixer highlighting the newly designed office. We had San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane in attendance (seen above cutting the red ribbon) as well as the Chamber of Commerce and a number of staff.

July 25, 2015, 05:00 AM By Jeanita Lyman Daily Journal - See more at: http://www.smdailyjournal.com/articles/lnews/2015-07-25/peninsula-museum-of-art-begins-receptions-for-mobility-impaired/1776425147345.html#sthash.MY5WK6ub.dpuf
Bay Area native Richard Roth never considered art to be his forte. However, when he was encouraged to visit the Peninsula Museum of Art by his former neighbor, who volunteered there, he was quickly recruited to volunteer himself and has become a fixture of the organization.
“I finally came over and then I met Ruth,” Roth said, referring to museum’s Executive Director Ruth Waters. “She was telling me that they needed volunteers, so after about a month or so, I’d been promoted from a backup deal to a co-chairman. So the promotion’s come fast.”
Although the museum’s facilities have been updated to meet the most recent ADA regulations, the crowded receptions posed a challenge for Roth, who found that it was difficult to maneuver in a scooter through crowds of people.
“We had a reception at the end of May and there was over a hundred people in here,” Roth said. “I remember I had to go from the desk to the restroom, and when there’s a hundred people stuffed in the deal there, it’s very difficult to get around. It’s just too crowded. The building is just too small.”
The idea to have a day set aside for people with mobility challenges came about as a result. As of last Tuesday, the museum and studios will open their doors for a second opening reception on the Tuesdays after their new exhibits debut. Although the gallery is accessible to everyone during its regular hours, the Tuesday receptions offer a less crowded and more relaxed option for mobility-impaired visitors.
“They want to look at it and then they want to stare at it and everything,” Roth said. “When you have too many people in here you just can’t do that.”
Waters said all it took was a little extra planning and consideration for the Tuesday reception. Placards and fliers were placed lower to be accessible to people in wheelchairs, and arrangements were made with their upstairs neighbors to use their front door, making the studios on the second floor accessible without an elevator.
Tuesday’s event attracted a small but enthusiastic group from Aegis Assisted Living in South San Francisco. The small turnout allowed them to take their time and enjoy the art in a relaxed environment.
“I noticed all the people who came today stayed about an hour,” Roth said. “They’re not rushed and they don’t have to worry about getting out of the way of other people and everything.
Aegis Assisted Living Director Ann Marie Andrez had arranged a trip to the museum for her residents before, and was excited that they’d have more opportunities to access a rich cultural experience so close to home.
“I met Ruth the first time when we came here, I think it was two months ago, three months ago,” Andrez said. “We’d never seen anything like it.”
The Peninsula Museum of Art changes exhibits about every two months and its next opening will be in September. Visit http://www.peninsulamuseum.org for the latest details on their next exhibit and upcoming events.
