The Knoxville Museum of Art Presents My Space Art Project in the KMA Community Gallery through September 5, 2010July 30, 2010 | BigWheel
The artworks in this exhibition were created during the MySpace Art Project, a two-day workshop held in late March 2010 at the Marcella Center for the Arts and Education in Sweetwater, Tennessee. The project was designed to introduce teens with autism to the concepts and skills required to create architectural design based on what they learned. MySpace Art Project is a program of VSA Arts Tennessee. Sponsors of this exhibition include Mark Holcomb, State Auto Insurance and the Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons.
The mission of VSA Arts Tennessee is to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in and express themselves through the arts and arts education and it achieves its mission through the primary goals: Arts in Education, Awareness of Abilities of People with Disabilities, and Professional Development. The KMA Community Gallery is open to regional and not-for-profit visual arts and cultural organizations. This outreach gallery is intended to create exhibition opportunities and increased visibility for area arts groups and call attention to a wide variety of local creative talent.
