AN INCLUSIVE ART EXHIBITION EMPOWERING ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD!

AN INCLUSIVE ART EXHIBITION EMPOWERING ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Empowering and bringing public awareness, recognition, and appreciation to artists with disabilities.

Uniting Borders is an inclusive art exhibition featuring original works of art by a diverse group of more than 20 local and international emerging artists who represent a wide spectrum of race, ethnicity, gender, age, and abilities—truly reflective of the diversity of our society.

This exhibition underscores the principle that the struggle for social justice that has taken root in our country must incorporate everyone in society, including people living with disabilities.

Now that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us, the Uniting Borders inclusive art exhibition celebrates the creative talents of a diverse group of emerging artists by showcasing their original works of art to reinforce our view and educate mainstream society that exhibitions of visual art can and must include people of all backgrounds without regard to disabilities.

We strive for the day when having a physical, intellectual, or other disability will in no way diminish the right of any individual to live independently and free of discrimination or bias, to enjoy self-determination, to pursue a meaningful career, to contribute to society, and to be part of a loving family.
