The Naples Art Association (www.NaplesArt.org) – a non-profit organization whose mission is to expand cultural opportunities, broaden education, and enrich Southwest Florida through the visual arts – is pleased to announce the unveiling of the My Art My Way exhibition, which will feature artwork created by students with disabilities from Oakridge and Golden Gate Middle Schools, will be on display May 16 through June 16 at the Naples Art Association’s Watson Gallery.
Provided under contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the My Art My Way exhibit is a new partnership between the Naples Art Association, VSA Florida, and Collier County Schools in which teaching artists, Dr. Eva Smidova and Susan Bagrationoff, taught students with and without disabilities. The students’ best works – including pieces led by Juliette Francoeur, an artist with a disability who led a collaborative project – will be on display.
