Celebrate and Support the Artwork of Artists with Disabilities

Creativity Explored seeks your donations to maintain their innovative programs supporting artists with disabilities. Your generous funds will help these artists with: free studio space, art supplies, transportation, and teaching artists who mentor them during their time with Creativity Explored.

Additionally, your donations help cover the costs associated with mounting the exhibits that feature the art at galleries and museums, which enable these talented artists to earn money from their artwork and maintain self-sufficiency.
