Art & Soul Exhibit

a&S 2015Partners and Toward Independence come together each Spring for our juried art exhibit that celebrates the creativity and talent of Ohio artists with developmental disabilities, one of the few exhibits of its kind in Ohio.

Forty five pieces are selected annually by three professional artists to participate in our Art & Soul exhibit, which includes our opening reception in March.

Our exhibit is funded 100% by sponsorships and donations. More than $1000 in cash awards is presented each year to award winners. Artists also have the opportunity to market/sell their art.

Use the Donate button in the header to sponsor our exhibit at the $250, $500 or $1000 level or to become an Art Patron with a donation of $100.00.
