Artists With Disabilities Display Vision

A one-of-a-kind art gallery in Manhattan is showcasing the work of artists with developmental disabilities. Check out Cheryl Wills report from New York 1 News.

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- With every stroke of the paint brush, Leon McCutcheon is perfecting his latest masterpiece. The 51-year-old Manhattan man has a mild developmental disability, but he has major talent. And it's all on display at the Pure Vision Arts Gallery in Chelsea.
"I'm really excited. Incredible. I never realized I did so much work," McCutcheon said.
Pure Vision Arts is the first and only studio and exhibition space in the city exclusively for artists with neuro-developmental challenges. During the day, artists paint, draw and sculpt. On some nights, their art tables are cleared out to make way for a swank exhibit.
