On June 12, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital’s Foundation Board hosted An Evening of Appreciation and Art for its Benjamin Rush Society members at the Waynesborough Country Club. Established in 2010 to coincide with the hospital’s 40th anniversary, the Society recognizes and honors donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually in support of BMRH programs and events.
The event was a kick-off to the campaign to raise an endowment for Art Ability, a year-long program which serves as a showcase for, and celebration of, artists with disabilities. At the event, it was announced that $230,000 has been raised to launch the campaign, with a goal of $2 million.
The annual Art Ability exhibition is free and open to the public beginning Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014 through Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015. Opening preview reception is Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014.
