For the last two years the Walker and Lifeworks Services, Inc. have collaborated in unique and meaningful ways. Walker staff has juried the Lifeworks Traveling Art Show and invited dozens of Lifeworks clients to the Walker for tours and art-making. The concept for the three-dimensional centerpieces/sculptures decorating the tables at Lifeworks’ annual gala this year and last originated from Walker Art Lab Coordinator Ilene Krug Mojsilov.
Lifeworks staff and clients actively participate in the Walker’s Open Door Access Advisory Group, offering counsel on the effectiveness of our programming for individuals with disabilities. Their insights continue to expand how we think, educate and experience art.
Our organizations’ missions have complimentary strands and this feeds a partnership that continues to grow and surprise us. We serve and engage our communities, examine the myriad questions and events that shape us as individuals, and celebrate the creative impulses unique to people.
To see our collaboration in action view this short film capturing Lifeworks’ clients at the Walker discussing and making art. The film was screened at Lifeworks’ annual gala in recognition of our partnership.
