Opening Reception, open free to the public, Saturday, April  14

A collaborative exhibition of artwork created by young artists with disabilities and local artists will be on display at the Kentucky Museum. Meet the artists at the reception on Saturday, April 14, from 2 PM - 4 PM in the Dorothy Grider Garden Gallery.

Students take a series of classes at the museum which are followed by one on one collaborative sessions with area artists. This enables student artists to explore the creative process as a group in small classes, in addition to receiving individual attention from a professional artist mentor. The exhibition include the student's work, the artist's work and their collaborative pieces.PROGRAM FLYER
