The Friends of the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin–Madison sponsor the Harvey A. Stevens International Collection of Art by People with Developmental Disabilities. With more than 220 works by artists from 15 countries, the collection is intended to, among other goals, encourage people with disabilities to express themselves and expand their world through art. To celebrate the launch of Drawn to Art, a book about the collection, the Chazen will host an exhibition featuring a selection of works from the holdings at the Waisman Center.
This exhibition has been organized in partnership with the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by Judith and David Ward and Terry Haller.
