VSA arts Rhode Island sponsors a variety of exhibition opportunities each year in fully accessible locations. This program represents both emerging and established artists with disabilities and serves to encourage artists with disabilities by giving them a place to exhibit and sell their artwork as well as resources to continue developing their artistic skills.

In addition to providing a showcase for artists, VSA arts RI’s EXHIBITION PROGRAM also has the goals of raising public awareness of our organization and its mission, as well as challenging an audience's assumptions about disability by reminding viewers that every person has unique capabilities and that throughout RI there are many talented artists with disabilities.

Please read our guidelines carefully before contacting VSA arts RI about upcoming exhibition possibilities and deadlines.
