The Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF) and United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) will partner for the first time to exhibit new work by adult artists with disabilities. “This exhibition is essential in promoting the hidden brilliance in our artists,” says Allen Terrell, director of the ECF Art Center programs. “It will help defy any stereotypes the public may have toward adults with disabilities by revealing their creativity and talent – by showcasing their abilities instead of focusing on their disabilities.” The exhibition will take place at Thos. Moser, 8705 Washington Blvd. from Jan. 15 through March 31. The opening reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15.
This show is an effort to bring awareness of the gifted adult artists represented through two of the largest organizations in California supporting this exhibit (UCP and ECF). The opening reception will offer refreshments and attendance is open to the public.
There is no admission fee and all artwork is for sale at this exhibit. We can also schedule appointments during the exhibit at Thos. Moser to tour our Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles. 50% of the sales go to the artists and the other 50% go into supporting the program
ECF and UCP, two of the largest non-profit organizations that support adult artists with developmental disabilities, have been serving individuals with disabilities for more than 60 years. Both organizations provide fine-art programs that offer support and training in visual arts.
