Mississippi State’s T.K. Martin Center for Technology and Disability will present a collaborative exhibit Thursday [April 9] in the Martha Lipsey Art Gallery.

Art students will create a ‘Soul’ portrait of the EXPRESS Yourself artists, while floral design students will prepare a flower arrangement to complement each painting. Interior design students also are designing a seating and lighting project to be paired with the art.

Using Artistic Realization Technologies techinques, the program provides a creative outlet for severely disabled individuals to express themselves through art.

An acronym for EXperiencing Painting as Recreation and Express the Sprit within YourSelf, the program is funded in part by the Mississippi Arts Commission, as well as sales of artists’ paintings and merchandise.

Regular gallery hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, as well as by appointment.

Additional information on the “Express Ourselves” exhibit is available from Judy Duncan at 662-325-1028 or jduncan@tkmartin.msstate.edu.

Named for MSU’s late vice president who led in making the university more accessible to those with physical challenges, the T.K. Martin Center for Technology and Disability provides comprehensive, multi-disciplinary evaluations to remove limitations through the application of assistive technology, allowing individuals to participate in educational, vocational and leisure activities to the fullest degree they choose.
