Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital’s Art Ability Program is a year-round showcase and celebration of art by artists with disabilities. As the country’s largest, international juried exhibition and sale of art and fine crafts created by artists with cognitive, physical, hearing and visual disabilities, Art Ability offers a unique and accessible venue for artists with disabilities to display and sell their work.
