Art Ability at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital is a year-long program which
serves as a showcase for, and celebration of, artists with disabilities.
Through art, we hope to inspire patients to reach beyond their
limitations, and to encourage people with disabilities to explore their
Established in 1996, Art Ability includes the following major
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
disabilities through the achievements and stories of our artists. As art
enriches their lives, we hope their creativity, talent and exuberant
spirit will enrich your life.
The call for entries is closed and we are no longer accepting
submissions for the 2015–16 exhibition. Our next call for
entries will open April 2016.
2015 Featured Artist
2 Max Tzinman
Medium: Giclée on Canvas
Max Tzinman was born in Romania and lived in Israel and Canada,
immersing himself in a multitude of cultures that influenced his
artistic/philosophical concepts. Born with a severe hearing impairment,
photography has allowed Tzinman to consistently tell his story in a
continuously moving world. Tzinman merges painting, photography, collage
and assemblage, to produce a series of deep and mysterious images.
Tzinman’s works often show the isolation and invisibility he felt of his
early childhood experience dealing with his impairment.
