International Call for Nominations in the Visual Arts
Artists with Disabilities -- VSA arts

Postmark deadline for submissions: December 6, 2002

As a dynamic preface to its International Festival to be held in June 2004
throughout Washington, D.C., VSA arts seeks nominations of signature
artists with disabilities who are committed to community projects that
will culminate in 2004. VSA arts recognizes that visual artists, when
engaged, make a meaningful and lasting impact on the cultural life of
their communities. In particular, we are looking for artists who are
articulate about their work and who embrace VSA arts' mission to promote
the arts for children and adults with disabilities, strengthening the
human spirit and improving quality of life for everyone.

Open to artists with disabilities, ages 21 and above, who possess a
refined artistic vision and have remained committed to their chosen media
for at least 5 years. Nominated artists must currently be practicing and
able to travel to Washington, D.C. for the 2004 International VSA arts
