Arts Advocacy: 'Nothing About Me Without Me'
The Council and Weber Gallery are kicking off our latest community arts-engagement project serving individuals with disabilities. Professional artists working in a variety of media (sculpture, photography, digital media, collage, drawing, performing arts, etc.) will lead workshops from September 2016 through spring 2017 that provide participants with disabilities with the skills and tools to explore and share their personal stories through the creation of art.
