The Center for Emerging Artists, created in 2000, was developed in response to a state and national trend aimed at discovering and fostering the artistic talents of individuals with disabilities. The Center is supported by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Retardation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the families of the Arc, and through the efforts and contributions of the public.
The Center is looking for people who would like to share their specialized talents with our group of unique individuals. Introductions to new components of art making is important in expanding their understanding of art.
