The Journey: A Juried Exhibition of 15 Artists with Disabilities
September 3 – November 30, 2015
Cleveland Clinic Art Exhibition Area – between Q and G buildings
The Journey is the thirteenth exhibition in VSA’s annual Emerging Young Artists Program, an initiative aimed at discovering young artists with disabilities on the cusp of their careers. The Office of VSA and Accessibility, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, works together with Volkswagen Group of America each year to produce professional development opportunities and a travelling exhibition, creating a place in which each artist’s individual talent, mode of expression, and view of the world is showcased and valued.
This year’s program theme asked artists to submit work that illuminates innovative viewpoints at the junction of sustainability, creativity, and disability through considering a journey—internal and external, personal and communal, human and technological.
This travelling exhibition is being presented nationally and at Cleveland Clinic in order to position and give visibility to the work of artists with disabilities throughout the United States and around the world.
