Good News Fridays: Giving Artists With Disabilities A Space To Thrive

As someone with a disability, I love seeing stuff like this.  From the YouTube channel Great Big Story, comes a video where those with disabilities can create their own special artwork.  Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, California, is the world’s first and largest nonprofit center dedicated to giving artists with disabilities the space to let their talents shine.  Since 1974, the center has served hundreds of artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities who lacked formal education in the arts.  The studio helps to provide the tools, the space and the inspiration needed to grow into professional, exhibited artists.  Today, artists represented by Creative Growth have been invited to the Venice Biennale, have had their works acquired by MoMA, and remain in high demand among collectors around the world.
