"That any notion people may have regarding the lack of ability or talent among the disabled may be disproved, for there are no barriers in the expression of art . . ."

Belsky Art Society, a curatorial collaborative founded in 1993, advocates for and promotes the work of artists underrepresented in the art world: Women, Artists of Color, Gay Artists, and Artists with Disabilities who tend to remain without full inclusion. The Society's mission is to celebrate their creative success, thus contributing to the development as a more  integrated artistic community.
