Penn State Great Valley is showcasing the works of 30 artists from Art Ability, a program of Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital in the Henry Gallery from August 24 through October 9, 2015.
Art Ability is a year-long program which serves as a showcase for, and celebration of, artists with disabilities. Through art, the program inspires individuals to reach beyond their limitations, and encourages people with disabilities to explore their own creativity.
The exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Henry Gallery, on the second floor of the Conference Center Building at Penn State Great Valley. Admission is free.
Established in 1996, Art Ability includes four 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; a 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.
