ARC Art Show
EXHIBITION: March 13th-May 16th
In celebration of March being National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, the Arc Allegany-Steuben artists have compiled an art exhibit to demonstrate an abundance of artistic styles and images.
Arc Art is a celebration of self-expression by artists with differing abilities. It is an Arc Allegany-Steuben sponsored outlet for artists with special needs to not only express themselves through art, but to raise community awareness of the diversity and value of artistic expression.
“We are honored to have partnered with the Wellsville Creative Arts Center for 14 years to promote disability awareness, and to encourage people with disabilities to explore new activities and discover their inner artist,” says Carrie Redman, Associate Director of Marketing & Community Relations. “Arc Art honors people with disabilities throughout Allegany and Steuben Counties and celebrates their accomplishments by spotlighting the talents of artists with a wide range of physical, cognitive and mental health disabilities.”
Over 25 artists are displaying their work in the Arc Art exhibit; varied in method and expression as the life experiences of the individual artists.
