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 Saturday, February, 6, from 2 pm - 4 pm in the Dorothy Grider Garden Gallery.

Side by Side, a statewide program, was created by VSA Kentucky 11 years ago in partnership with the Kentucky Museum. The premier exhibit  was at the Kentucky Museum. It is designed to offer a creative outlet for students, reinforce inclusiveness and positive self-image, and highlight the importance of arts education in the development of our young people.Additionally students have the opportunity to work alongside a community professional artist and see their work exhibited at the Kentucky  Museum. For more information about this program contact Delaire Rowe at 270-904-7019.

Students take a series of classes at the museum that 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.

VSA Kentucky is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing inclusive arts and education programs for children, youth, and adults with disabilities, in addition to, professional development for artists and teachers in schools and communities statewide.
