ASPiRE! Artists Program
Seven Hills developed the ASPiRE! model of day programs to better support individuals with disabilities and other significant life challenges. ASPiRE! has restructured the way that day habilitation, adult day health, workforce readiness, and employment services are typically offered by promoting personal choice and self-determination in a dynamic, and dignified, community-driven environment. Learn more about the ASPiRE! program by visiting the Seven Hills Foundation website.
Open Door Gallery @ Worcester Art Museum exhibits and celebrates the work of aspiring, emerging, and established artists with disabilities, acting as a catalyst for community convening and conversation within the museum.
Designed as both a working studio and gallery, Open Door Gallery @ Worcester Art Museum supports the creation of new works and the sharing of artwork with the Greater Worcester arts community and beyond!
As a partnership between VSA MA, Seven Hills Foundation, and the Worcester Art Museum, Open Door Gallery @ Worcester Art Museum seeks to expand opportunities for meaningful experiences and connections through the arts for people of all abilities.
