It’s been a year of creative reinvention! To stay connected to broad audiences, we reimagined EOD’s programs for virtual platforms, including for our annual Bayfront Park exhibit. We were able to bring the exhibit to Nathan Benderson Park for the summer and even enjoyed a mini-exhibit at Ed Smith Stadium. Because of these efforts, 384,000 people visited the 2021 exhibition.
Reinventing our programs was a massive effort and, thanks to vital support from area foundations, businesses and individuals, we did it with flying colors. Our efforts are also buoyed by dedicated educators, high school volunteers, our EOD Ambassadors and everyone else who shares EOD’s commitment to honor the complex spectrum of human potential and celebrate the differences that make each individual precious and unique.
