Life Without Limits Art Exhibit

Life Without Limits, this year’s annual art exhibit, highlighted a variety of art including mosaic, sculpture, murals and paint on canvas. This work was on display at the Groton-New London Airport and the Garde Art Center in New London, CT this Summer and Fall. The artwork was created by individuals from United Cerebral Palsy’s (UCP) community program for people with disabilities in CT. The artists collaborate with each other and UCP staff members to create one piece of artwork every year that gets displayed at a public art forum in New London called Hygienic Art. The Life Without Limits Exhibit is a compilation of this artwork over the last eight years. “People participate in any way they can, whether it’s coming up with the initial concept to making choices about a paint color using an eye gaze. The art program at UCP helps each person express his or her unique talents in a way that’s accessible to each person. The arts can bring joy along with a sense of organization and accomplishment to their world,” said Jennifer Keatley, UCP Executive Director.
