LCA-Latest-Exhibition-Highlights-Artists-Living-with-Cognitive-DisabilitiesLubeznik Center for the Arts' (LCA) latest exhibition, New Perspectives, showcases amazing artworks created by student artists of LCA's Health Promotion through the Arts Program. This program, now entering its eleventh year, provides a creative space and high-quality arts instruction for adults living with cognitive disabilities. In partnership with Paladin, Inc. and The Social & Learning Institute, these weekly visual arts classes explore and develop motor and vocabulary skills and foster social support and peer relationships. Thanks to Duneland Health Council for generously funding this program.

New Perspectives displays artworks created by almost 40 artists who have participated in the program in 2018 and features a wide variety of media including sculpture, drawing and printmaking. The show celebrates the self-expression and confidence of these remarkable artists.

Stop by to view the display in LCA's NIPSCO Art Education Studio from December 3 through January 12. Join us for a public reception during our First Friday event on December 7th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Artworks are for sale, and proceeds benefit the artists and the program.
