The 8th Annual Expressions Art Exhibition celebrates the artists’ abilities and unique talents, adds diversity to the Kansas City arts community, and exposes audiences to art that otherwise might not be seen.
In 2017 the opening night event, a nonticketed, free-to-the-public opening, welcomed nearly 500 people, and we often had standing room only. Held again at Kansas City Young Audiences, Expressions consists of the work of 15-20 artists who are selected by a committee of professional artists and arts educators.
Expressions not only breaks down some of the barriers that artists with disabilities face, but it also offers an art gallery experience that is accessible to people of all abilities.
