Nation's First Permanent Art Gallery Made By and For Artists Who are Blind or Visually Impaired and/or Disabled 

We are a group of artists, friends and collaborators working and growing together in our creative explorations and artistic journeys. 

We are blind. We have low vision. We are disabled. We are women. We are men. We are elders. We are children. We are Black. We are Asian. We are Indigenous. We are Latinx. We are queer. We are American. We are Immigrants. We are friends. We are your neighbors. We are artists. We are creative. We are resilient. We are a community.

Envision Your Impression: A New Community Art Piece in Downtown Wichita's Gallery Alley

From agencies and schools working with individuals with disabilities, to those serving our aging population, to agencies committed to improving the health and well-being of our community, 18 community organizations have a piece of artwork in this assembled art piece. Envision Your Impression is an opportunity for people to witness and experience the impact of those around us and the city that we live in. It is a collective impression that creates markers of our city’s identity, the fingerprint of Wichita, Kansas.

The Envision Arts Gallery is the premier, national destination for artists and audiences who are blind, visually impaired and/or disabled. 

Our mission is to empower these amazing individuals to exhibit, perform and engage our community through this accessible, diverse, and inclusive space for the arts.

Public Call for Art

We are looking for talented artists of all ages with visual, physical, cognitive, and hearing disabilities to showcase their creativity, experiences, and stories.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves through the arts, regardless of their abilities. Our exhibitions are designed to provide a platform for artists with disabilities to share their unique perspectives with the world.

If you are an artist, agency/organization, or a collective group of artists with disabilities, we encourage you to submit your work for consideration. This is a great opportunity to showcase your talent and reach new audiences. We welcome all modalities of expression from two and three-dimensional artwork, to music, movement, and the digital and literary arts.

If you are an artist without a disability and would like to propose an exhibition, workshop series, or host an event that will advance the creative arts experience for individuals with vision loss and disabilities, there are opportunities for you as well!
