Presented in conjunction with VSA arts and Volkswagen of America, Inc., this exhibit was developed to "recognize and showcase young artists with disabilities living in the United States, helping to support, validate, and finance their artistic endeavors and the life-defining decision to pursue the arts as a career." With $60,000 in prize money, the work chosen for the exhibition was selected by heavy hitters William A. Newman, artist and professor at the Corcoran Gallery of Art; John Perreault, art critic for Artopia; and Lisa Wainwright, Dean of Graduate Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
