What is Art Beyond Boundaries
Art Beyond Boundaries is a non-profit fine arts gallery where artists with disabilities can display, market, and sell their artwork. In addition, the gallery works as the arts program for its host organization, The Center for Independent Living Options(CILO).
The gallery promotes creative expression for people with disabilities by providing annual exhibits where artists can show and establish their talents. Furthermore, artists have the ability to connect with local and regional arts organizations, for example; FotoFocus, LightBorne, and Kennedy Heights Arts Center.
Art Beyond Boundaries mission is to promote the understanding of artists with disabilities and show that art goes beyond the limits of disabilities. The gallery encourages the involvement of all adults and children as visitors and artists. Above all, ABB raises awareness of talented artists with disabilities in the arts community.
