“King Gimp” to be shown Nov. 29
November 16, 2017

Wor-Wic Community College will host a showing of “King Gimp,” an award-winning documentary of the life of artist Daniel Keplinger, on Wednesday, Nov. 29, at 6 p.m. in Guerrieri Hall at the college campus in Salisbury.

The documentary chronicles Keplinger’s life from the age of 12 to 25 years old. The film won both an Academy Award and a Peabody Award. According to cerebralpalsy.org, the film begins with Keplinger as a self-conscious teen with severe cerebral palsy and ends with him as a college-educated artist and self-sufficient independent adult.

Following the showing, Keplinger will share his story and conduct a live art demonstration.

This event is sponsored by Wor-Wic’s cultural diversity committee and funded by a grant from the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council.
