2nd Annual Indianapolis Airport Art Show

2nd Annual Indianapolis Airport Art Show

For the second year in a row, the Indianapolis Airport is hosting an art fair in honor of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. In partnership with our trade association, INARF, and Ability Indiana, the airport is displaying 72 pieces of art created by individuals with disabilities now through the end of April. This year, we are excited to share that 12 individuals who are served by New Hope had pieces selected to be a part of the art display.  

On March 14th, the airport hosted a kickoff for the art fair. During the event, the audience was treated to a performance from New Hope of Indiana’s choir. Check out their spectacular performance of ‘What the World Needs Now Is Love’ by Jackie DeShannon below!

During the program, we also heard from New Hope’s licensed Art Therapist, Lyndi Grubb, as she spoke about the importance of art therapy and how it can benefit the lives of individuals with disabilities. We are proud of all she has accomplished in New Hope’s art therapy program and are thankful she was able to share the impact this program has had on the lives of the individuals we serve. 

In addition to Lyndi, we also heard remarks from Bill Stinson, Director of Public Affairs at the Indianapolis International Airport and New Hope of Indiana Board Member. Bill played a large part in making this event happen, and we are thankful that he is a part of #TeamNewHope.
