Opening Reception: Saturday, July 14 from 4pm to 6pm
Artists with developmental disabilities step into the limelight as they claim their place in the world of contemporary art during a collaborative art show merging the artists and interests of Art Enables, Creative Trails, Hozhoni Foundation, Imagine That!, MOSA Museum of Special Art, N4th Gallery, Sophie’s Gallery and Suzi Cappa Art Center. Together these galleries celebrate the tremendous talents of persons with developmental disabilities and help them forge an identity as a person that is creative, original, sensitive, independent, imaginative and as someone who can affect an emotional response in others with their art.
Featuring the artwork of 24 individual artists, The Road Ahead will touch many lives across the United States as it travels for over a year stopping in eight cities. The Road Ahead will exhibit at Art Enables July 14-August 24 before moving to its next location, and features AE artists Michael Haynes, Michael Schaff, Michael Knox, and Helen Lewis.
Art Enables is located 2204 Rhode Island Ave. NE. For more information, visit www.art-enables.org.
