SENSES : Community and Youth Arts Exhibition

The third and current exhibit titled SENSES Community and Youth Arts Exhibition features artwork created by individuals of all ages with physical, cognitive, visual or hearing disabilities, is now available at the Envision Arts Gallery and Community Engagement Center in downtown Wichita, Kansas. Envision, the nation’s premier service provider to and employer of individuals who are blind or visually impaired, opened the permanent art gallery in January 2022 and was recently featured in Midwest Living Magazine's top summer picks list.

The SENSES Community and Youth Arts Exhibition highlights various artists from different community disability organizations and works created by the Envision Arts After School Art Club and the children of the Cathy G. Hudson Envision Child Development Center (ECDC). Organizations involved include Looking Glass Day Services, Heartspring, Down Syndrome Society of Wichita and Envision’s PRIDE group. 

The theme, “SENSES,” was developed to showcase how we experience, navigate and understand the world through all of our senses in the form of two-dimensional, three-dimensional, video, photography, music, performance-based and literary artwork. 

SENSES will be on display at the Envision Arts Gallery & Community Engagement Center from June 3 - August 26 in downtown Wichita, Kansas at the Envision Arts Gallery.

A graphic shows four colorful squares with icons and a title which reads, "SENSES COMMUNITY ARTS EXHIBITION". The top left square is purple with a white eye icon, the top right square is red with a white finger print icon, the bottom left is yellow with a white heart icon, and the bottom right is green with a white sound wave icon.
