Capabilities Opens First Mobile Art Show on September 16

We are delighted to announce that we launch the first of what we expect will be many art shows on the walls of Capabilities on September 16, 2008, the third anniversary of Capabilities. We feature our Mobile Art Collection, hand-painted mobility equipment designed and crafted by local artist, Amy Vicioso, and Gae Miller, artist from Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Amy has developed a unique gold-leafing process to create fashion canes and crutches. Her latest “graffiti” technique uses symbols and color to bring home themes of healing and comfort.

Gae Miller creates whimsical designs and patterns that integrate lifestyle and comfort. Inspired by her own journey, Gae began painting canes and crutches as she faced her own challenges with disability.

You can meet Amy Vicioso on September 16 as she joins us to unveil our Mobile Art Collection at 5:30 p.m. at Capabilities. You can view these unique creations through October 31. You can also purchase this Mobile (and functional) Art at Capabilities.
