“Unexpected Re: Views”: Artwork Created by Individuals with a Disability

September 07, 2017 9:17 am

Does the artist who created this work have a handicap?

Does the answer to that question change your perception of it?

Art levels the playing field. It crosses boundaries of gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, and mental/physical capacities.

Unexpected Re:Views, a series of exhibits funded by a Premier Grant from SI Arts, showcases the work of the disabled on Staten Island. It helps the community see special-needs individuals, and see them in a new light. Their creative expression needs no accommodation or “exception” to be on a par with—if not rival—the work of other artists on the Island.

Between August and December 2017, we will partner with The PepperJack Grill, the College of Staten Island, Art Lab, Wagner College, and Staten Island University Hospital to bring these exhibits to the public.

Please come to the open reception, co-sponsored by the Center For Student Accessibility on Thursday, Sept. 7 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) West Lounge at 4:30pm.
