Our studio and gallery space might be closed until May 1, but we're still open for business online! Here's our latest show:

Wild and Beautiful

Sheltering in place has all of us dreaming of the Wild and Beautiful places and things beyond our four walls.


Project Onward artists created a collection of artworks depicting plants, animals, and natural landscapes through their own artistic lens. The results are a stunning and welcome reminder of the natural beauty of our planet and the amazing talents of artists with disabilities.

There's more to see

Project Onward believes we can inspire change by using art to promote empathy and reduce the stigma of mental illness and developmental disabilities. We seek to improve the self-image of artists by emphasizing the social and economic value of their work.


You can directly contribute to this belief and help improve the lives of each Project Onward artist by purchasing their work. Our online shop is open 24/7, and half of the sale for each original piece goes directly to the artist.
