The Road Ahead celebrates the highly original work created by adult artists with developmental disabilities. Four venues in the United States that serve adults with development disabilities with art programs have partnered to develop this unique traveling exhibition. This includes Flagstaff’s own Hozhoni Foundation.
The exhibition will open with a Members’ Preview Reception on Saturday, August 20, 2016, 6-8pm (to become a member, join here). The following weekend will be the Public Opening Reception on Saturday, August 27, 6–8pm. There will be live music, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. The participating artists from Flagstaff will be in attendance.
