Disability Connection Hosts the Art Ability Fair


On Thursday, November 10th Disability Connection hosted the 13th annual Art Ability Fair: a free day of professional art instruction for over 350 children, ages 8 through 21 with developmental disabilities, from over 25 schools. This year’s theme is “Blast Off to Outer Space.” The 2022 Art Ability Fair, held at the Biloxi Civic Center, has been made possible through Mississippi Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities, Nursing Management, Bacot McCarty Foundation, City of Biloxi, and additional business partners.

Disability Connection serves over 15,000 people annually from the six southern counties of Mississippi through programs, events, resources, and special projects that support those in need, especially those with disabilities. Their Mission is “creating a connected community to inform, assist, and participate in collaborations that engage people with disabilities to fully participate in their communities – eliminating barriers, and fostering cooperation and understanding.”
