Congratulations Lauren, Lucas and Jonah!
Once again I am soooo proud to announce that the art work of three Greenleaf Way Special Artists has been accepted into VSA Ohio’s Accessible Expressions Ohio annual juried art show! Such “warm” news for this time of the year! Lauren has been submitting for six years, Lucas and Jonah for four years now I think. Accepted every year, it is such a compliment to be recognized among peers! Last year, Ohio State University purchased a group of art work from the exhibit which included Jonah’s “The Phantom of the Opera” and Lauren’s “The Twin” to be permanently installed at The Nisonger Center at OSU in Columbus, Ohio. (Note: Lucas’ “Petropolis” was not for sale.)
VSA Ohio (an affiliate of VSA International, program of The John F. Kennedy Center) implements programming and services that provide inclusive environments and opportunities for people with disabilities to celebrate through the arts. They advocate for accessibility and equality and are dedicated to improving the academic achievement of Ohio’s students through arts integration. For more about the many things they do, visit their web site: http://www.vsao.org/
This year’s Opening Ceremony is Saturday March 8 in Columbus. After that, the tour will be
divided up into smaller groups and will tour various public locations in Ohio.
Their artwork is for sale; purchases can be made through VSA. Inquire on their web site.
