Award Ceremony

group-photoPeople are afflicted with disabilities either a) from birth or b) acquired later in life by accident, disease, stroke, genetics, or aging. Those affected from birth have faced their challenges head on and live their lives with gusto. Those that have acquired their disability later in life are adjusting every aspect of their lives to adapt to the challenges of a new lifestyle.

Art is one of adventurous paths taken to live that new lifestyle. As artist Jan Mitchell professes, "My art is an extension of the youth in my heart, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do."
