Artists with Disabilities Raise Awareness

The work of eight special artists was unveiled Wednesday at the state Office of People With Developmental Disabilities, or OPWDD. The mural was five weeks in the making, a way for people like Lisa Kasper to raise awareness for people with special needs.

"I want other people to see that because I am visually impaired that I can still do art, and I can share my art with other people," says Kasper.The OPWDD program works with residents at the Institute for Community Living, an organization that provides housing and services for developmentally disabled people.
