Create Ability: An Opportunity to Be Creative, A Chance to Grow

In a previous post I wrote about our Create Ability program for children and adults with learning or developmental disabilities, and the annual exhibition of work produced by these participants that was about to be installed.

Create Ability: An Exhibition of Their Own

In September, one of the participants of Create Ability, MoMA’s monthly program for individuals with learning or developmental disabilities and their families, asked me, “Why don’t we have our own exhibition?” We were returning to the classroom to create our own art after a gallery tour wherein we’d discussed The Moroccans by Henri Matisse, Harlequin by Pablo Picasso, and the neon-colored sculptures by Franz West outside in the Sculpture Garden. I immediately began gathering artwork created each subsequent month, and on Thursday, March 4, the opening reception for the first exhibition of work produced by Create Ability participants was held.
