Sheryl and David Evelo, in partnership with ICI, founded the Art for All endowment in 2012, in memory of their daughter Stephanie Evelo (1969–2012), a gifted artist and dedicated ICI employee and colleague.
Today, Art for All: The Stephanie Evelo Program for Art Inclusion at the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Community Integration, supports the work of emerging and professional artists with disabilities by connecting them with the wider community through exhibits and events. These events create inclusive spaces for discussing, promoting, and selling artists’ work, enhancing the community’s understanding of artists with disabilities and their vision of the world. The program embodies ICI’s mission of improving policies and practices to ensure that all children, youth, and adults with disabilities, and those receiving educational supports, are valued by and contribute to their communities of choice.
