DIS/PLAY, a group exhibition on view March 24 through April 23, 2015, centers the perspectives of artists with and without disabilities who deconstruct and examine individual and shared experiences of disability culture, shatter assumptions about access in the arts, surface complex and varying narratives, and evoke emotional responses that transcend pity or inspiration. In DIS/PLAY artists claim and define their own identities, experiment, and make their own rules. DIS/PLAY coincides with the 25 year anniversary of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability.

The opening reception offers opportunities to meet the artists of DIS/PLAY and engage in multimodal art explorations. Paint with artist Neal Barbosa and play musical instruments made from skateboards, designed with limited hand mobility in mind. At 7pm, The Comedians With Disabilities Act offers a 45-minute comedy interlude, including well-known stuttering stand-up comedian, activist and educator Nina G.
