Artists with Disabilities Focus of new Call for Art from the Price Center
The Price Center’s Anna Broome is bringing her personal focus on individuals with disabilities into public view via a new Pop-up art exhibit coming to the Center Sept. 21 – 23. A special Call for Art is seeking artworks by area creators with disabilities under the theme Reflections of Me. Two separate Calls will be held for the show, including Sat., Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. – 3p.m. and Wed., Sept 20, from noon-5. Submissions may not exceed 11” x14” and do not need to be framed but must be ready to hang. There is no fee to submit to this special show. For more information, contact Broome directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Broome is a certified recreational therapist who serves as the Center’s vice chair of the board and has taught traditional and chair yoga at the Center since 2012. In her classes at the Center and in her private practice, she often works with individuals with disabilities.
“People too often focus on what individuals with disabilities can’t do verses recognizing all the things they can do,” said Broome. “This show is a way to open up people’s eyes, hearts, and minds to the disability spectrum,” she added.
The Price Center is a unique downtown gathering place with a public art gallery, garden, rentable venues, and enriching activities for all. As a non-profit, operating funds come from dues-paying members, donations, grants, and revenue generated from venue rentals, Shop 1893 sales, and art sales.
