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. It coincides with the 50th anniversary year celebrations marking the establishment of the community-based system of services for people with developmental disabilities in California that resulted in the landmark 1969 legislation that is now known as the "Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act."
