Overview

Fees: Free

In early 2017, the Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) asked the public to submit original artwork that depicts the theme of “Breaking Barriers” and received dozens of amazing entries from talented individuals across the Commonwealth. MOD would like to thank all participants for submitting their work.

A central purpose in holding this exhibition is to showcase the talent of our Commonwealth residents and to present works to the public that will raise awareness of and challenge the barriers and stigma that persons with disabilities may encounter.

Our jury has selected pieces that they determined would best reflect the theme of “Breaking Barriers.”

The exhibit will be open to the public.

When

November 14 - 24, 2017, Open Monday through Friday 9 a.m.– 5 p.m.

Please note the State House is closed to the public on weekends and holidays.
