Art for All: The Stephanie Evelo Fund for Art Inclusion

Description

Curates ongoing and revolving exhibits of visual art by artists with disabilities at the Institute on Community Integration, celebrating art and diversity while supporting artists with disabilities. Each installation features a new set of art for approximately four months and is occasionally celebrated with an art reception for the artists, their family members, and staff, and attended by the Institute and broader College community. To date, the project, which was formerly known as Changing Landscapes: An Ongoing Exhibit of Artists with Disabilities at ICI, has partnered with over a dozen organizations to put on these exhibits (see Collaborators below). This project was the springboard for the Arts & Disability Symposium, held October 30, 2009 on the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus.
