The exhibit features original works by California artists with developmental disabilities. It is presented in partnership with the California Disability Community Action Network (CDCAN) and Choices Person Centered Services with the California Person Centered Advocacy Partnership, Claraty Arts, and The Art of Autism.

The exhibit challenges assumptions about people with developmental disabilities.
