Arts for All - Artist Talk

Artist Christy GraceARTS for ALL Wisconsin showcases the art of artists with disabilities. Hear from artist and advocate Christy Grace!

Christy Grace is a local professional artist, illustrator, and invisible illness awareness advocate. Growing up, Christy surrounded herself with everything artistic like cake decorating, face painting, mural art, and graphic design in addition to traditional mediums. Having such wide range of creative expressions, her work was noticed by Arts for All Wisconsin and she was brought in as a teaching artist to work with combat veterans. While sharing her artistic knowledge Christy also brings a deep empathy for those living with chronic illnesses or disabilities. Because of her own experiences with illness, she loves to share how art has become a tool for documenting, communicating, and even healing.

The Arts for All exhibition is available in the Sue Ames Room upon request during library hours (when the room is not in use) and at the following times:
