Lubeznik Center for the Arts Exhibit Highlights Artists Living With Disabilities


Featured Creatures showcases artworks completed by student artists of Lubeznik Center for the Arts' (LCA) Health Promotion through the Arts Program, in partnership with The Social and Learning Institute (SLI) and Paladin, Inc, provides weekly classes for adults living with developmental and cognitive disabilities. This program, now entering its tenth year, provides a creative space for these artists to explore and develop motor and vocabulary skills, as well as develop social support and peer relationships. Thanks to Duneland Health Council for generously sponsoring this program.

This "Featured Creatures" exhibit displays the works created by almost 40 artists who have participated in the program in 2017 and features a wide variety of media including sculpture, drawing and printmaking. The show celebrates the self-expression and confidence of these remarkable artists.

Additionally, in 2016 and 2017 student artists from SLI created holiday themed prints as part of their educational curriculum. Selected prints were then made into a limited run of blank greeting cards which are available for purchase in LCA's Holiday Artisan Market through January 5. Proceeds support the artists and the educational art program.

Come in to view the display in LCA's NIPSCO Art Education Studio and pick up your set of holiday cards through January 5.
