components: an annual international juried exhibition and sale of art
and fine crafts produced by individuals with disabilities; community
outreach and education opportunities including satellite exhibitions and
interactive demo days; our permanent collection of artwork and the
incorporation of artwork into the patient experience; and a corporate
art acquisition program.
The Program’s goal is to foster a better appreciation of people with
