From Harford County government:
The Harford County Cultural Arts Board and the Harford County Commission on Disabilities are proud to present Art Without Boundaries, in recognition of the 24th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The artwork will be on display now through August 30, 2014 in the Student Gallery in Joppa Hall on the Harford Community College campus.
Artists from the area submitted 90 pieces of art. “We are so excited to see the overwhelming response this year”, stated Marc Weinstein, Chair of the Harford County Commission on Disabilities. “Art without Boundaries celebrates the talents and creativity of artists of all abilities. Art created by artists with and without disabilities is indistinguishable and can be enjoyed by all.” We’re grateful to Dean Paul Labe of Harford Community College’s Visual, Performing and Applied Arts Division for welcoming the exhibit back to the Student Gallery for a fourth year.
The gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., Fridays from 7:30 a.m. until 9:15 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. The Student Gallery is closed on Sundays.
