Artists With Disabilities Show Their Talent

A total of 140 artists with learning disabilities will share their unique, inventive, and colorful perspectives on the world in a permanent exhibition at the Marie Sk這dowska-Curie Oncology Center in Warsaw. The exhibition opens March 22.

The painters whose work will appear in the exhibition are the winners of an art competition entitled 安iat Nikifor闚 (The World of Nikifors), part of a special program called Nikifory. Launched in 2006 by the United Way Poland Foundation, the program was named after Nikifor, a folk artist and one of Poland’s finest primitivist painters.

The program was created to help people with learning disabilities and mental disorders to develop their talents. Filmmakers Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze, directors of M鎩 Nikifor (My Nikifor), a biographical film about the artist’s life and work, have lent their support to the project.

The 安iat Nikifor闚 competition is open to adults attending nearly 600 occupational therapy workshops across Poland. The winners are being selected by a panel of experts in art, art therapy, and special education.
