Art Chat: Creative Education Of Adults With Disabilities


Enjoy a lively look at art as a creative learning opportunity for adults with disabilities during a special Art Chat at Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery.

In conjunction with the current exhibition, Where Have All the People Gone? that runs August 23 through September 30, Exhibition Director Tim Buckwalter will host a special art chat on Wednesday, September 11 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Buckwalter will offer a lively look at the efforts amongst several art centers that focus primarily on offering adults with disabilities the opportunity to learn, create and engage in a contemporary art scene. He will discuss the unique stories behind the artists’ work featured in the exhibit along with the history and inner workings of the Art Center known as NIAD (National Institute of Art and Disabilities) located in Richmond, CA.
