The exhibit has traveled the nation as part of the International VSA Festival. VSA, the international organization on arts and disability and the CVS/Caremark “All Kids Can” program join together each year to encourage inclusive arts education and provide increased public awareness of the arts in the lives of young people with disabilities.

The community will be able to enjoy the creativity and beauty expressed by 51 student artists, one from each state and the District of Columbia, chosen from 5,500 submissions.

Angela Colton, executive director of The Woodlands Children’s Museum, said that hosting the exhibit has been an honor.

“The art has been an inspiration to all of our visitors,” she added. “It’s a wonderful exhibit, not just because of the talent on display but also the message behind it.”
