Opening at the UVM Davis Center on February 21!
Our 5th exhibition features the art of 25 Vermont artists with disabilities. The theme emerged from community input. The artwork expresses cycles of nature. Cycles of the body, mind, and spirit. Experiences of repetition, circular shapes, and more. The exhibition will tour the state between February 2024 and December 2024, kicking off at the University of Vermont’s Davis Center. Cycles will then travel to Montpelier, Brattleboro, St. Johnsbury, and return to Burlington.
Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 21 from 4-7 PM
UVM Davis Center 4th Floor | 590 Main St. Burlington, VT
On view at the UVM Davis Center from Feb. 15 – March 31.
CYCLES is presented in partnership with UVM Davis Center, UVM School of the Arts & the UVM CDCI.

The CYCLES exhibition is more than art on the wall. Accessibility is an integral part of the show. All venues are physically accessible, and the art and artists can be experienced remotely in the online tour. There are multiple ways to interact with CYCLES!
Each of the 27 pieces in CYCLES has verbal descriptions. Tactile representations and elements accompany selected works. Materials are available in multiple formats. These include print, large print, Braille, audio tour, and digital formats. Opening receptions will have ASL, quiet space, and sensory items.
