Celebrating 25 years of creating fine art


arts access gallery The Arts Access Program at Matheny Medical & Educational Center is designed to inspire, uplift and encourage the aspirations of artists with disabilities. In an effort to provide access to the same disciplines available to able-bodied artists, Arts Access offers courses in all of the fine, performing, and literary arts. Using systems and techniques specifically designed for each discipline, participants can create pieces of work that are distinctly their own. On a daily basis, Arts Access fosters an environment of artistic creativity among the participating clients. The program improves the quality of life for the participants and those around them. In addition, Arts Access programming aids in changing the perception about the capabilities and talents of people with developmental disabilities.
