An annual collaboration goes VIRTUAL
The 10th annual Rutgers NJMS Collaborative ARTS Exhibit features work by artists from the Matheny Arts Access Program and JSDD’s WAE Center. Both programs are dedicated to enabling individuals with disabilities to create fine art. The artistic process is an undeniable source of empowerment for people with disabilities, and the work included in this annual exhibition is a testament to the success of each of these programs.
This annual exhibition is one that is highly anticipated each year by our artists and staff. Knowing that this year marked the 10th anniversary of this special collaboration, we were all the more excited to celebrate this year’s exhibit. However, when COVID-19 and #StayAtHome orders started to change our day-to-day lives, we knew that the Collaborative ARTS Exhibit would not be quite as we envisioned it this year. Refusing to let this momentous anniversary pass by, we found ways to adapt the exhibition for a virtual space.
