Director of Matheny’s Arts Access Program Eileen Murray sat with Joanna Gagis on “Life & Living” to discuss this important program for people with disabilities and the life changing impact it is making.
“The art resides within them,” Murray says, “and Arts Access gives them the tools to get it out.” They do this by providing facilitators. A facilitator is a professional artist who is trained to be the arms and the legs for the person who can’t use theirs.
Matheny is a special hospital for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities. Their mission is to provide exceptional care and an optimal quality of life for children and adults with special needs and medically complex developmental disabilities.
