Stone Belt’s Art and Craft program goes beyond occupational therapy. The art program is right at the heart of the agency’s mission to prepare, empower and support individuals with developmental disabilities to participate fully in the life of the community. WFIU’s Yaël Ksander got to know a few of those individuals, who are starting to define themselves as artists.
The show of mixed-media mosaics by the artists of Stone Belt is currently on view at Lennie’s Restaurant, at in Bloomington. Another exhibition is scheduled at the WonderLab in March. The collaborative sculpture, “Animal Island,” which was dedicated in October 2008, was the first installation on the B-Line Trail.
