SELFHOOD ALSO FIRST.
BEING is about truly valuing the work —
by valuing the artist who created it.
BEING is a diverse community of artists with developmental disabilities. At BEING, artists have access to the space, the tools, and the representation to create and commercialize their visual art and creative writing.
The studio offers a unique visual art and creative writing program that promotes inclusiveness and nurtures bold new voices. BEING artists contribute to the cultural life of the city through regular exhibitions and special projects with guest artists. We deeply value diversity, and strive to create an accessible and welcoming space for everyone.
