Call of Artists for “Ability 3” Exhibition


If you are, or if you know an alumni artist that identifies with a physical and/or cognitive disability, then we’d love to include your/their two- or three-dimensional artwork in an upcoming exhibition.

On March 9, 2023, the IU South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center will partner with the Office of Disability Support Services to unveil “Ability 3”, featuring works by local artists who self-identify as living with different forms of disabilities, physical and/or cognitive.

To have your artwork considered for inclusion in the exhibition, all you need to do is email a photo of your work(s) along with brief information about yourself to George Garner at gwgarner@iusb.edu by January 23. Including dimensions of the work will be incredibly helpful as we decide how many works we can include. We will consider only original 2- or 3-dimensional works of art (no performance, music, or digital-only).

We intend to select a mix of IU South Bend student/faculty, IU alumni, and community artists so they may have the opportunity to expand their networks, support each other, and the local community of artists with disabilities.

Mark your calendars for March 9 when we unveil the exhibition with an opening event.

Questions? Contact George Garner, Civil Rights Heritage Center Assistant Director and Curator, at gwgarner@iusb.edu.

We can’t wait to celebrate IU Day with you!
