Student Art Shines in VSA Disability Exhibit

A new art exhibit has open in the gallery at the E.H. Hereford University Center.

“Exquisite Variation: VSA Disability Art Exhibit” opened Monday and will run through the end of the week. A reception with artists is slated for 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 1.

VSA, the international organization on arts and disability, was founded more than 35 years ago by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith to provide arts and education opportunities for people with disabilities and increase access to the arts for all. With 52 international affiliates and a network of nationwide affiliates, VSA is providing arts and education programming for youth and adults with disabilities around the world. Each year, 7 million people of all ages and abilities participate in VSA programs, in every aspect of the arts – from visual arts, performing arts, to the literary arts.

This exhibit will showcase the work of artists with disabilities in north Texas. Co-sponsored by the Office for Students with Disabilities and the Disability Studies Minor.
