Featuring the inspiring work created by participants in Main Line Art Center’s Accessible Art programs for children, teens, and adults with disabilities, at-risk youth, and low-income families. Now in their 50th year, these programs have transformed thousands of lives and positioned the Art Center as a resource for individuals in our community and organizations across the country. Exhibitions include work from the Art Center’s own Exceptional Art Program, as well as our programs with partner organizations: Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Elwyn, and theVillage, formerly Presbyterian Children’s Village.

Join us for our Sensory Garden Party on Sat., May 31 from 1-3 pm as we honor the inspiring artists in these programs and unveil the Sensory Garden, with celebratory remarks at 2 pm. The Sensory Garden Party is free and open to the public and will feature demos by artists fromArt Ability at Bryn Mawr Rehab, Sal Panasci & Cathy Pregmon, a craft for all ages and abilities, music by DJ Mikey Mike, party fare, and wine courtesy of Barefoot Wine & Bubbly. An artist reception will run concurrently in the Center’s award-winning galleries for Jewels & Treasures, a fine art exhibition and sale running May 9 through June 6, which benefits the Center’s Accessible Art Programs and educational offerings. Overflow parking is available at The Haverford School, Brandywine Senior Living, and Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology.
