Chloé Duplessis creates images that illuminate the forgotten, elevate the unknown, and mindfully address the present. In doing so, she seeks to erode the social constructs that oppress people of color and those navigating disability. She is a legally blind artist, historian and culture bearer committed to creating work that centers equity, accessibility and healing.
With over twenty years of experience in intercultural engagement, arts administration and advocacy, she has traveled to 9 countries and 24 states in support of her work. She is also co-creator of Denver’s Holding Hope mural celebrating accessibility, and creator of the City’s first accessible “I VOTED” sticker. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies from The University of New Orleans, and studied art and history at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. Chloé has been featured in The Denver Post, 303 Magazine, Where Y’at Magazine, The Independent and on Colorado Public Radio, CBS 4 News Denver, and NBC 9News Denver. She presents work annually and offers talks on art, accessibility and inclusive design.
