AWS Foundation CEO, Patti Hays and museum vice president, Amanda Martin feel that a show like this celebrates the artists and their unique life positions.

As part of its 10th anniversary celebration, AWS Foundation has partnered with the Fort Wayne Museum of Art to present a trio of exhibitions, addressing the effects of physical and mental disability on the creation of art.
