Through Our Eyes

In March 2016, ArtWorks artists presented an exhibition entitled Through Our Eyes at the University of Arizona Museum of Art. The twenty-five artists who are adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities took personalized tours and created original pieces inspired by the Museum’s collection.

An Amazing Opportunity for our Artists

We have been invited to bring Through Our Eyes to the Hozhoni Art Gallery in Flagstaff in January and February! We need your help to take our artists to Flagstaff so they can be part of their opening art reception.

Your gift will help cover the costs for travel, lodging and meals for up to 10 artists and an accompanying family or staff member. 

Our Artists & You

Your support will help our artists:

  1. Develop new life skills in leadership, responsibility, and social interactions
  2. Use their art as a tool to connect to others
  3. Interact with other artists in a similar program in Flagstaff
  4. Share their art with a broader audience
  5. Learn hands on experience about putting together an art show

 Who We Are

ArtWorks is a community that provides creative and expressive arts interactions between adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and University of Arizona students. The core programs consist of the Sister Jeanne Carrigan Art Studio and the Mary T. Paulin Gallery which serve as a safe space for expression, connection and growth for artists, students and community.

Ten Artists to Flagstaff

We would love to be able to take ten of our artists to the opening art reception of Through Our Eyes in Flagstaff.



ArtWorks has had numerous pet cats. Our oldest cat Tigger is 18 years old.


Hozhoni Foundation

The Hozhoni Foundation was founded 46 years ago on December 15, 1970 in Flagstaff. One of the foundations day program services is the Hozhoni Art Studios and Art Gallery. This is where our artists will be displaying their art.


Through Our Eyes

Including planning, personalized gallery tours, art-making and the length of the exhibit, Through Our Eyes was about 120 days worth of work and dedication.


260 Miles to Flagstaff

We expect to travel back and forth to Flagstaff many times to make this show a success. Help us get there!
