The Arts Access Program
For more than 25 years, the Matheny Arts Access Program has been empowering artists with disabilities to create art without limits.
Through the use of innovative systems and techniques, artist can take part in the visual, performing, and literary arts. Regardless of their disabilities, artists are provided with the tools and materials needed to produce complete pieces of work that are distinctly their own.
On a daily basis, Arts Access fosters an environment of artistic creativity among the participating artists. The program improves the quality of life for the artists and those around them. In addition, Arts Access programing aids in changing the perception about the capabilities and talents of people with developmental disabilities.
The artwork created by the artists in the Arts Access Program clearly demonstrates the creativity, talent, and abilities of artists with disabilities.
Arts Access is a nurturing environment for self-expression, providing opportunities for artists to create, perform, exhibit, and sell their work. The program is a vehicle through which individuals with disabilities can have their ideas, imagination, and creativity come to life.
