MOSA Museum for Artists with Disabilities
Organized by: Angela Shannon
A new museum is being developed called the Museum of Special Art (MOSA) to provide access to the arts to children and adults with disabilities.
Currently without great support or mentorship it is often very difficult for individuals with disabilities to have equal opportunities as nondisabled individuals for creating artwork, accessing careers in art, and exhibiting their work, and opportunities for sales of their artwork. Due to the limited opportunities for individuals with disabilities in the areas of the visual arts, many of their artistic creations are never exhibited and displayed in our community nor are their artistic achievements and talents recognized.
This fundraiser is being developed to support the new MOSA museum to provide services and programs in the arts for individuals with disabilities, art materials, and for two year end exhibitions.
