Jon Imber

I just added this to the Terminal Disease Cultural Collection and thought it worth sharing:

Jon Imber’s Left Hand (Richard Kane 2014).
-Thanks CCALS for reporting on Jon Imber.
-This is an amazing preview of a documentary about renowned painter Jon Imber, who kept painting right through the end of his struggle with ALS, switching to his left hand, and then to a brush fastened to his head. His last painting was the week he died in April 2014.
He had an unquenchable zeal for life and beauty, and was part of a loving family and circle of friends that supported him, literally, in his work, holding him up while he painted.
See for examples of his exuberant, colorful work.
