Breaking Barriers

Artfully Able

March 23 through May 14, 2023

On view in Durr Filauer Gallery


Breaking Barriers: Artfully Able will bring together the work of artists with various physical or cognitive conditions in a relatively new and often unexplored segment of art history. Each artist in this exhibition is known to have lived with a cognitive, developmental, or physical impairment. Instead of focusing on stereotypes perpetrated against them, this exhibition will emphasize their contributions to the art historical canon while overcoming limitations.

Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
