Introducing Changemakers - Bay Area Disability Pride January 11 - March 15

Dear Colleagues and Community Members,

The San Francisco Public Library presents CHANGEMAKERS: Bay Area Disability Pride.

The exhibition runs from January 11 – March 15, 2020 in the Skylight Gallery located in the San Francisco Main Library (100 Larkin St. at Grove St.), 6th Floor.

ABOUT CHANGEMAKERS: Changemakers is an exhibition of local people with disabilities who were nominated by their communities for creating meaningful change. Artists with disabilities were commissioned to create portraits of each nominee and the results are vibrant and fascinating. Most of the artists create their work in the studios of the Bay Area’s signature art programs for adult artists with disabilities: Creativity Explored, ArtReach, NIAD, Artful Steps and The Pomeroy Center.
