Lubeznik for the Arts (LCA) proudly introduces its newest exhibition, "As We See It," opening November 7. This colorful show celebrates the 12th year of creative achievements by artists from LCA’s Health Promotion through the Arts program, which provides high-quality arts instruction to adults living with cognitive disabilities.

Health Promotion through the Arts (HPA) is offered in partnership with The Social & Learning Institute and Paladin, Inc., with funding generously provided by Duneland Health Council and Horizon Bank. “Our HPA students are artists, first and foremost,” says Hannah Hammond-Hagman, LCA’s Education Director. “This program encourages social and motor skill development, but more importantly, nourishes individual creativity and expression.”

"As We See It" is curated to include some of the best artwork by nearly 40 artists who participated in the program in 2019. As the title suggests, the exhibition provides a platform for these remarkable artists to express themselves and their thoughts using a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, and clay. Some works are for sale, with proceeds benefiting both the artists and the center. All are welcome to stop in and view this memorable exhibition in the NIPSCO Art Education Studios between November 7 and January 4. A public reception celebrating "As We See It" will take place during LCA’s free First Friday event on Friday, December 6 from 5 to 8 PM.
