The celebration included the opening of the “CREATIVE LIKE ME” Art Exhibit.   The day began with a proclamation from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to honor the adults participating in the art project, which begins as the nation observes Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.

Following the proclamation presentation, Arts and Culture hosted a reception and opening of the art exhibit in the Peachtree Gallery.   The Gallery is located on the second floor of the Fulton County Government Center at 141 Pryor Street, Atlanta, GA. The March 7 – May 24 arts activities feature the art works of adult individuals using the services of Developmental Disabilities.  

“CREATIVE LIKE ME” will also include an April 3, 2018 Panel Discussion titled “The Value of Creative Expression.”   The panel discussion will be held at the Central Training Center located at 425 Langhorn Street in Atlanta, GA.   The one-hour panel discussion begins at 10:30 a.m. and is free and open to the public.

 The idea for an arts collaboration began with a proposal from Arts & Culture as a means of expanding government services to reach over 300 developmentally disabled adults with enrichment through creative expression.
