Artists with disabilities show artwork at City Hall

The exhibition Seattle Inspiration will showcase the creativity and artistic expression of 20 artists with disabilities, Jan. 6 through Feb. 28 at City Hall. The nonprofit Creative Activities and VSA Washington, the state organization on arts and disability, curated the exhibition.

Seattle Inspiration includes more than 35 abstract and contemporary paintings, prints and mixed-media works. Colorful cityscapes, iconic imagery and materials found on adventures through the city illustrate how Seattle has inspired a group of artists that receive little exposure. Many of the featured artists produced their work at the Seattle Center Artist Studio of Creative Activities & VSA of Washington.
