FROM HEART INTO ART: Interviews with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Artists and Their Allies

For over a decade, Raymond Luczak, author of Silence Is a Four-Letter Word: On Art & Deafness, has been interviewing Deaf and hard of hearing artists and their allies about their creative and arts accessibility work. This volume features over 70 people sharing what it means to be an artist who happens to be different.

"When I was little, I never really quite questioned all those millions of sound norms I’d inhabited." —Christine Sun Kim, Non-Traditional Composer

With the vast bulk culled from his nine years of interviewing artists for SIGNews, Luczak has added 19 new interviews that offer contrasting views against historical snapshots still relevant to artists everywhere. These lively interviews provide new insights while bringing the reader closer to understanding the extraordinary talents of the participants.

"It was important to go through that period of rage and rebellion, but is it worth sustaining forever?" —Jeremy Quiroga, Sculptor and ASL Poet
