Discover Visibility Arts!

Visibility Arts provides a space for professional and emerging adult visual artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities to explore, learn, create and show their artwork.  

Visibility Arts is a combination of group learning experiences and hands-on studio time. Visibility Arts is based in Mount Prospect with a fully equipped studio and art gallery. Classes are also offered in Search’s Chicago and Evanston adult learning locations. Visibility Artists also enjoy regular opportunities to show and sell their work in a variety of galleries and public venues.
