Artwork created by students with and without disabilities from across the country will be featured in an exhibit in the nation’s capital this summer.
The display at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington will include works by 102 students — two from each state and the District of Columbia — selected from over 3,000 submissions.
The annual exhibit features the work of students with and without disabilities side-by-side in an effort to promote inclusion. This year’s theme is “What Inspires Me.”
The contest and showing are organized by VSA, an affiliate of the Kennedy Center that focuses on increasing opportunities in the arts for people with disabilities.
The exhibit will be open to the public August 1-26.
