Art show showcases work by artists with disabilities
This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh." to our segments
An art show in Sioux Falls is showcasing the work of people with disabilities. DakotAbilites has teamed up with artist Edward Eich to present a show at Van Art studios.
Eich created a "spin machine" that helps DakotAbilities participants create individual pieces of art. The machine is constructed using a bicycle wheel mounted sideways.
Director of Development Jennifer Smith-Hoesing spoke with Megan Feighery on In the Moment. Smith-Hoesing says opportunities like these are meaningful for DakotAbilites members because it shows they are more than their disability.
The DakotAbilites art show opens 5 pm Friday, April 1, at Van Art Studio in Sioux Falls. Donations will benefit DakotAbilites.
