Yes I Can Work

The "Yes I Can Work" campaign focuses on the fact that young people with disabilities have skills that are valuable in the workplace. Five works of art were selected to be reproduced as 17" x 22" posters for this awareness campaign aimed at employers, social service providers and the general public. The posters will be available from VSA Minnesota and Pathways to Employment at the State Council on Disability booth at the Minnesota State Fair.

Two Spectrum ArtWorks artists, Christi Furnas and Faye Howell were artists whose work was chosen to be made into posters. Congratulations Christi and Faye!

50th anniversary mural progress

The Spectrum ArtWorks artists are almost completed with the mural celebrating the 50th anniversary of RESOURCE. We asked all 400+ RESOURCE staff to sign a wooden leaf as if they were signing a card. The leaves are being raked in and it’s shaping up fantastic!
