Artists with developmental disabilities step into the limelight as they claim their place in the world of contemporary art during a collaborative art show merging the artists and interests of Art Enables, Creative Trails, Hozhoni Foundation, Imagine That!, MOSA Museum of Special Art, N4th Gallery, Sophie’s Gallery and Suzi Cappa Art Center. Together they celebrate the tremendous talents of persons with developmental disabilities and help them forge an identity as a person that is creative, original, sensitive, independent, imaginative and as someone who can affect an emotional response in others with their art. Featuring the artwork of 24 individual artists, The Road Ahead will touch many lives across the United States as it travels for over a year stopping in eight cities. Sophie’s Kensington Gallery, part of the art program of St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center will premier The Road Ahead on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at our Kensington location and continue to travel through July 2019. The Road Ahead will exhibit at Art Enables July 14th - August 24th, 2018 before moving on to the next location, and features AE artists Michael Haynes, Michael Schaff, Michael Knox, and Helen Lewis.
