This installation features work created by participants in MoMA’s Create Ability program, monthly workshops for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families. Guided by teaching artists from MoMA’s Access Programs, participants focus on a different theme each month, discussing artworks in the galleries and creating their own work in the studio.
Participants are encouraged to explore the various facets of their artistic ability through experimentation with diverse materials. In this program we aim to foster a sense of connection and community, empower through the exploration of new artistic forms and processes, build confidence, have fun, and challenge stigmas surrounding disability. By challenging participants in a supportive environment, we see beyond disability and tap into creativity.
