Creative Power: VSA Wisconsin’s Traveling Exhibition will make its next stop here in Waupaca at the Waupaca Area Public Library.
The traveling exhibit, which is comprised of 30 framed two- and three-dimensional works of art by Wisconsin youth and adults with disabilities, will open Monday, Jan. 6 and run through Saturday, Feb. 15.
The traveling exhibit comes from VSA Wisconsin, a nonprofit organization based in Madison.
The organization utilizes dance, drama, creative writing, music and visual art to celebrate the creative power and artistic accomplishments of children and adults with disabilities throughout Wisconsin.
The exhibit features works which have been selected by a panel of independent jurors through VSA Wisconsin’s annual Call for Art.
The art in the exhibition is for display purposes only and is not for sale.
Work in a variety of media, including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and mixed media will be on view.
The Waupaca exhibit will also include additional local artwork made by Waupaca County youth and adults with disabilities.
This is coordinated separately through Waupaca County Industries and Waupaca School District art teachers and is not part of the traveling exhibition.
Visitors may enjoy the work of local and statewide artists during regular library hours, which are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.
The exhibit is free to the public and will be located in the lower-level exhibit room.
Support for this exhibition has been provided in part by the Department of Public Instruction through a federal discretionary grant, Xcel Energy Foundation, Waupaca Area Community Foundation and Herbert H. Kohl Charities, Inc.
