Deaf performing artist puts on a show in Canyon
April 14, 2012
Amarillo, TX – A popular deaf performing artist made a stop in Canyon Saturday night.
The Canyon High American Sign Language Honor Society brought artist Peter Cook to our area for the second time through a lot of fund-raising and hard work.
His performance last year was such a big hit, they say they had to have him back for a second time.
“I think it gets the ASL Honor Society at Canyon High out into the deaf community, where they’re more welcoming of us, and they’re very supportive of us, and they help us out,” ASL student Kayla Hall said.
Peter Cook is known for his works which incorporate American Sign Language, pantomime, storytelling, acting and movement.
He has traveled the world in order to promote ASL literature.
