Los Angeles Art Association and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation are proud to present "Equity for All Artists" a special art exhibition featuring the work of artists challenged with paralysis and spinal cord injury. This exhibition, juried by Rebecca Hamm, opens Saturday, August 17, from 6-9pm at Gallery 825. The exhibit runs through August 27, 2013.


Equity for All Artists opens at Los Angeles Art Association's prestigious Gallery 825 on August 17 and will feature the work of artists challenged with paralysis and spinal cord injury. LAAA believes that the visual arts offer a powerful means for people with disabilities to think, understand, communicate and create in new ways. This exhibition will acknowledge and celebrate the contributions that artists with paralysis and spinal cord injury make to the cultural and economic life of our community. The opening reception for Equity for All Artists is August 17, 2013 6-9pm. The exhibit runs August 17 - August 27, 2013.

LAAA Executive Director Peter Mays emphatically states: "LAAA is proud to build on the success of our 2007, 2008 and 2011 Reeve Foundation supported exhibitions and is delighted with the confidence that The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation has again placed in LAAA as a result of our work with artists with paralysis and spinal cord injury. As an 88-year-old non-profit organization committed to providing greater access and equity for all Southern California artists, LAAA believes that the Equity for All Artists exhibition made possible by CDRF will extend the benefits of our mission to artists with paralysis and spinal cord injury, thereby raising public awareness and appreciation of their talents and abilities."
