The Hope Vision Voice Art Show (Aug 25- Oct 16, 2019) was inspired by the idea that hope can be expressed through our relationships, vision can be achieved through dreaming and with intention our voices can be heard.
With these core ideas, The Council set out to build hope, share vision and showcase many voices thorugh this collaborative community art show. Instrumental to the success of the show was the support of the Louisville Jewish Community Center's "J" Patio Gallery, along with local partner agencies: Active Day of Watterson Park, Creative Diversity, Dreams with Wings, Pillar, Studio Works by Zoomgroup, the Trinity Center for Faith and Art and the Yes! Group.
This art show highlighted sixty (60) different artists all of whom are affected by a developmental and/or intellectual disability. The collection of art included work that was created by established artists and novices. Each artists was invited to share their personal artistic interpretation on the concepts of hope, vision and voice. The show as a whole expressed joyful celebration for our community.
Shawna Dellecave, The Council's Family Advocacy and Art Outreach director currated the artwork and led art making workshops at the participating agencies in preparation for this show.
