Description

13th Annual Exhibit
NJ Medical School Collaborative Exhibit 2023

JSDD’s WAE Center & Matheny Arts Access
Exhibit Dates: June 26 – August 31

Welcome to the 13th annual Rutgers NJMS Collaborative ARTS Exhibit, featuring work by artists from Matheny Arts Access and JSDD’s WAE Center. Both programs are dedicated to enabling individuals with disabilities to create fine art. The artistic process is an undeniable source of empowerment for people with disabilities, and the work on view is a testament to the success of each program.

Two Opportunities to View

We are pleased to once again offer two opportunities to view the artists’ work both virtually and in-person. If you aren’t able to see the show in-person at Rutgers NJMS, we are offering a virtual edition of the exhibit that can be viewed on desktop and mobile devices. By taking advantage of this hybrid viewing experience, viewers from near and far can take part in celebrating the work of this talented group of artists.

This year’s exhibition features vibrant paintings and drawings by artists from Arts Access and artists from the WAE Center. We can’t wait to share this collaboration with you!

About Rutgers NJMS

The nation’s best medical schools are known for providing the highest quality medical education, research, patient services, and community outreach. At Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, these priorities are combined with a commitment to constant innovation and progress as we keep our mission, vision, and values in mind.

About Arts Access

Since 1993, the Matheny Arts Access Program has been empowering artists with disabilities to create art without limits. A groundbreaking fine arts program, Arts Access utilizes innovative communication systems and techniques to empower artists to create in the visual, literary, and performing arts. Arts Access provides the traditional tools and materials needed to create art, along with one unique additional tool: a human being. Not just any human being, but a professional artist facilitator who is trained to be the arms and legs of the participating artist. Every choice comes from the participant, from paint color and brush stroke, to dance movement and theatrical staging, to each written word. On a daily basis, Arts Access fosters an environment of artistic freedom among its artists, and works to change perceptions about the capabilities and talents of people with disabilities.

Featured WAE Center Artists:

Christina M. | Daniel M. | Diana S. | Elliot A. | Gigi F. | Kari S. | Kevin M. | Kimmy F. | Kristen I. | Mark L. | Yael K. | Zak Z.
