Minnesota Disability Mural

These artworks are part of the Minnesota Disability Mural Project (MDMP), exhibit in the fall of 2013 at City Center in downtown Minneapolis. The 1 foot x 1 foot art tiles were created this summer by Minnesotans with disabilities or people with a personal connection to someone with a disability. For many, the art-making was a first-time experience. For others, this exhibit is the first time they have had their artwork on public display. Still others make art every week.
