Overview

Art Centers: American Studios and Galleries for Artists with Developmental or Mental Disabilities by Betty-Carol Sellen

Throughout the United States, there are progressive art centers, studios, and galleries that provide services for artists with special needs. Art centers play a positive role in encouraging personal growth, creativity, and self-reliance.
This book has two main parts. The first is a directory of art centers in the United States that provide services for men and women living with mental or developmental disabilities. Each entry includes a brief description of the art center’s program and objectives, a list of associated artists, and contact information including administrators, websites, phone numbers, fax numbers, and physical addresses. The second part is biographical, giving descriptions of more than 460 artists and their work.
