Fifteenth Annual Disability Art Exhibition (2022)

The City of Los Angeles Department on Disability Presents the Fifteenth Annual Disability Art Exhibition.

Disability is a lived reality for many Angelenos; as many as 20 percent of the adult population and 14 percent of students live with one or multiple disabilities. October's Disability Employment Awareness Month pays tribute to the economic accomplishments of people with disabilities and reaffirms the commitment to ensure equal opportunity for all. People with disabilities are a diverse group. Some are born with a disability and others acquire a disability later in life due to age, injury, or illness. Disabilities include a wide range of visible and invisible health and functional limitations. These limitations can present significant challenges to daily life activities such as low vision and blindness, hardness of hearing, deafness, cognition, or mobility.

It is the Department on Disability's privilege to showcase disabled artists and the organizations that support the artistic talents and abilities of children and adults with disabilities. By exhibiting these works we promote disabled artists' access to artistic expression and a means to achieve financial empowerment. We have reimagined our annual exhibition as a digitally accessible web page due to the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit to view the collection.
