Did you know that October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month? In honor of the month, Glenwood was invited to showcase art by those we serve at Kessler Lofts, located at 1926 3rd Ave N. We kicked off the art show with a reception hosted by Forstall Art Center. The reception also honored Joe Carter upon his retirement after 40 years of serving families at Glenwood. Carter started working with Glenwood’s children’s programs in 1979. Then, as those children grew into adults, he worked to establish adult services at Glenwood.
Carter has a special spot in his heart to help those we serve enjoy creative endeavors such as art, music and performing. Below is an example of one project of Joe’s artists. Art gives every person the opportunity to express themselves in a different way. Stop by Kessler Lofts in October to see truly unique art pieces!
