WHY ART PARTNERING FOR THE DISABLED? Art is for everyone irrespective of disability! Art promotes learning, inspires connection, and enhances personal identity. As a conduit for artistic expression, ARTiculations Ability Exhibitions promote the inclusion of artists and audiences with disabilities into the rich network of exhibitions offered throughout Western New York.
