How does change happen? Who creates change? Changemakers is an exhibition of local people with disabilities who were nominated by their communities for creating meaningful change. Artists with disabilities were commissioned to create portraits of each nominee and the results are vibrant and fascinating. Most of the artists create their work in the studios of the Bay Area’s signature art programs for adult artists with disabilities: Creativity Explored, ArtReach, NIAD, Artful Steps and The Pomeroy Center.

The exhibit is funded by an LSTA Grant to San Mateo County Libraries, and San Francisco and San Jose Public Libraries to provide more inclusive programs and services for people with disabilities. The Friends of San Francisco Public Library generously donated additional funds.
