In recognition of Jewish Disabilities and Inclusion Awareness Month, which is nationally celebrated in February each year, the Waltuch Gallery at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is sponsoring its annual art exhibition that features the artistic talents and accomplishments of individuals in our community with special needs. This year, more than 200 pieces were submitted for this month-long exhibition from 10 different regional schools and programs. Works include framed drawings and paintings, as well as ceramics, cube sculptures, digital paintings, photography and more. Each piece showcases the creative talents of school-aged children, teens, adults, including participants of the JCC Guttenberg Center for Special Services.

Art for All celebrates not only the creative, artistic talents of these individuals, but also the spirit of inclusion that we here at the JCC pride ourselves on,” says Shelley Levy, Director of the Guttenberg Center for Special Services.
