Overcoming Inspiration: Experiencing Acceptance

Overcoming Inspiration: Experiencing Acceptance is our response to the growing trend to view those living with challenges as inspiring. While often well-intentioned, it puts focus on the disadvantage–disability, social status, demographic, circumstance, etc.– rather than the individual. This exhibit It is a culmination of artwork that highlights what it means to our artists to live and thrive in today’s world. Each artist carefully designed and created their pieces & their unique style can be seen throughout. It is a testament to what can be achieved when given opportunity and encouragement. And, it serves as a reminder that we are first and foremost people–Artists First!
