What is Expressions?
The 9th Annual Expressions Art Exhibition showcases artists with disabilities, celebrating their abilities and unique talents. The annual exhibition adds diversity to the Kansas City arts community and exposes audiences to art that otherwise might not be seen. 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.
The 2019 Expressions Art Exhibition opened on April 5, 2019 at the Kansas City Young Audiences, and will remain on display at multiple venues through February 2020.
