What is Art Beyond Boundaries
The Art Beyond Boundaries Gallery is a professional mainstream fine art exhibition venue where local and regional artists with disabilities display, market, and sell their artwork. The mission of the gallery is to promote awareness and understanding of artists with disabilities. The gallery strives to demonstrate to both the artists and the community that art transcends the limits of disabilities.
Art Beyond Boundaries provides innovative programs to help the community break down architectural, attitudinal, and programmatic barriers in order to encourage the full participation and inclusion of adults and children with disabilities in the rich arts and culture available in the region, as both spectators and artists.
We promote the creative power in people with disabilities by:
– Advancing awareness in an inclusive community
– Breaking through barriers
– Building opportunities for artistic expression
Our Host Organization is cilo.net
The gallery is hosted and facilitated by The Center for Independent Living Options, a local non-profit established in 1977 that provides independent living resources to adults and children with all types of disabilities.
