A world of art: exhibitions, networking and a few good books.

The Philadelphia Inquirer posted this recent article about Bryn Mawr Rehab's annual "Art Ability" exhibit. The juried exhibit features work from artists with disabilities from 29 states and six other countries.

As of summer 2007, Indiana has made its own special contribution to the art world. ArtsWORK Indiana provides information and resources for people with disabilities who would like to pursue careers in art.

CeDIR also has several excellent books on art and art therapy. Here are just a few examples:

Lancelle, Matthew. Sundays with Matthew : a young boy with autism and an artist share their sketchbooks.
CeDIR Call No. 8 .L34

Evans, Kathy. Art therapy with children on the autistic spectrum : beyond words.
CeDIR Call No. 40.3 .E83

Henley, David R. Exceptional children, exceptional art : teaching art to special needs.
CeDIR Call No. 48 .H45
