The Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) hosted the “Breaking Barriers” Art Exhibit at the State House from November 14–24, 2017.  The exhibit featured 23 pieces of original artwork by Massachusetts residents all over the state. The purpose of the exhibit was not only to showcase Massachusetts talent, but also to raise awareness of how persons with disabilities break barriers and overcome stigma.

An opening reception was held in Senate Room 428 on November 14, 2017. Over 100 guests attended the reception, including artists, their friends and families, Massachusetts legislators, and other supporters. The artwork can be viewed online at www.mass.gov/mod/art.  MOD thanks all who participated, attended the reception, and visited the exhibit.

Here are a few photos from the opening reception.
