POSTPONED - Art Show Closing Reception: entrance
Art for All has always been committed to creating and maintaining communities that are safe. After careful consideration and using guidance from the University of Minnesota's Covid response team Art for All has decided to postpone the art reception today, Wednesday the 19th. We will continue to monitor Covid responses and guidance from our public health professionals before rescheduling the reception
A closing art reception is a time to celebrate the run of the show, meet the artists, and talk about the meaning of their art. This is a hybrid event where you may join in person or via Zoom (link to come soon). Small bites and hot beverages will be provided.
Moving forward: A collaboration
ICI’s MNLEND program and Transition Plus School (Tplus) have invited Art for All to collaborate on a mural project in which T-plus students will create a mural on the walls of their school that represents the meaning of transition from high school to community life for people with disabilities. MNLEND Fellows Erica Lee and Tayler Guccione led a community forum called “Creative Conversations,” FEW WORDS ON WHAT THIS WAS. Transition Plus’ art teacher AJ Molle and principal Jason Backes are leading the students through the process. Lena Osman, a graduate of Tplus has joined the project as a mentoring artist. Lena will provide an artist talk to the students about her own transition process and career development.
Impact: Careers in the Arts
Art for All founder Sheryl Evelo and program manager Nik Fernholz profiled the growing program in a recent issue of Impact, ICI’s flagship publication. The article shares Art for All’s vision for supporting the work of artists with disabilities through philanthropic support.
