Sam Levin in the East Bay Express penned a terrific on our current exhibition and the Center itself.
You truly really cannot lose at a NIAD Art Center fundraiser. Seriously. With Win Win 2, NIAD has commissioned artists — more than 200 national and local artists, including all of the artists at NIAD’s studio art program — to produce work (paintings, photographs, sculptures and drawings) in a standard 6 x 6” format.
Selected by local curator Anuradha Vikram, “Hand To Hand” offers a lively survey of emerging artists from NIAD Art Center alongside work from emerging artists at United Cerebral Palsy of Culver City.
NIAD’s visual art program promotes meaningful independent living by artists with disabilities—while its artists create remarkable contemporary art. In a unique open studio environment, and with the guidance of qualified staff, NIAD artists acquire new skills in artistic practice and in independent living.
While not all of NIAD’s artists receive wide-spread recognition for their art, all gain a sense of pride from learning a craft and profession of their own. Artists at NIAD earn 50% commission from the sale of their work and a nearly all have sold at least one piece of art by participating in the program.
NIAD Art Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is supported in part by local and national foundations, businesses and individual donors (like you.) We could use your support in whatever way you can afford. NIAD’s art program promotes extraordinary art and meaningful living by artists with disabilities.
