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.
