One of our WISR students, Gabriela Hofmeyer, has been awarded a 2017 NADC/California Arts Council Grant for Disabled Artists for her proposed Community Outreach Expressive Arts & Trauma Awareness and Recovery Projects. The statewide award is to support Community Outreach Projects and Awareness Programs by Disabled Artists in California, sponsored by the National Arts and Disability Center, the California Arts Council and the Semel Institute, UCLA.

One of Gabriela’s pieces, “Quatre Bleu se Violacer” was selected for the LymeLight Foundation Annual Fundraiser Gala, Dart for Art at the San Mateo Event Center, March 24. The Foundation raises funds and awareness for children and families affected by Lyme disease, and to raise awareness about Lyme disease and Chronic Illness.
