Nonprofit Celebration Company, which provides advocacy, social, and life skills and meaningful employment to individuals with disabilities, is now partnering with Village Medical. Through the new partnership, artwork and photography from artists with disabilities at the Jewish Family Service's Center for Art and Photography at Celebration Company will be displayed in Village Medical offices around the country. Village Medical plans to license more than 20 pieces from Celebration Company to display in new primary-care practices, along with the artist’s bio and a description of their artistic passion. The collaboration will allow Celebration Company to continue to expand its job skills and employment model. The 17 artists whose works were selected for this phase of the national art program include Elyse Brandt, Amy Davis, Bailey Ferguson, Becca Golub, Shelley Heffler, Gabrielle Howard, Neville Karpas, Linda Lopen (who passed away in 2015 but whose memory will live on through her art), Jeffrey Markman, Maggie Merrill, Ellen Reichenthal, Melissa Shapiro, Ian Spindler, Jacob Sulton, Halley Turner, Nickolas Vasquez, and Evan White. Pictured is proud artist Neville Karpas with his art displayed in a Village Medical location.
