Embrace Autumn with Meadow Magic

'Meadow Stripes' painting by Barbara Lidfors.

There is nothing like transitioning into November with the fall foliage that greets us each day. The warmth of garnet reds, glowing oranges and amber tones feel like the Yellow Brick Road, taking us on a path of appreciation as we mark the end

The Interact Center showcases the artistic talents of people with disabilities

“The medical model defines people with disabilities by what they can’t do,” says Jeanne Calvit, founder and artistic director of Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. “Here,” she says, “they’re defined by what they create.”

Interact Center, founded in 1996, is for people ages 24 to 70 with disabilities ranging from Down syndrome to clinical depression to blindness. It’s a place where they can put on original shows and experiment with visual arts. Read more about The Interact Center showcases the artistic talents of people with disabilities
