ArtAbilities Featured at Kids Basel Miami (FL UCEDD/LEND)

January 23, 2020

The Mailman Center's Art Abilities Art Collection was exhibited at Kids Basel during Miami's Art Basel week from December 3 to 7th. Miami's Art Basel is an annual international art festival where artists around the world exhibit their artworks. Kids Basel, founded by Ashley and Brian Sidman, held their second exhibit this year showcasing artworks by young famous local and international artists.

Our exhibition featured 20 paintings from children with disabilities from Miami's public schools system. It was a great opportunity and medium for ArtAbilities to promote their artistry and help to overturn negative stereotypes of disability to create a new vision of independence and full access to community life. Photo taken at preview night features from left to right Dr. Michelle Schladant, NBA player and artist Desmond Mason, Dr. Jeffrey Brosco and spouse Maria Brosco.
