Annual H’Art of Envision Show
The H’Art of Envision Art Show is a unique and expressive collection created by the talented artists supported through Envision’s Art Program. This event highlights paintings, ceramics and other types of media created by adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Envision’s Art Program provides classes that are intended to build on the natural creative skills of people to increase their social and emotional skills, improve dexterity, enhance ability to focus, and improve self-esteem. The goal of the program is not to teach painting, drawing or sculpting in a traditional manner, but to provide the materials, support and encouragement to develop natural talents.
The H’Art of Envision displays the resulting artwork in a formal gallery setting including an Opening Reception held during downtown Greeley’s First Friday Art Walk in October. This event exposes artists with disabilities who are often underestimated, historically devalued and would not otherwise be featured in a professional art studio or gallery. The artwork inspires many and often attendees are surprised at the quality of the art, which changes the perceptions of individuals with IDD within the community.
In addition to the H’Art of Envision Show, artwork is sold year-round through our Online Art Store.
