4/23 – Capitol Books & Gifts Celebrates Arts Advocacy Day

Arts Advocacy Flyer 2019

Join DDSO and arts organizations from all over the state of California at a rally for arts advocacy at the California State Capitol. Stop by Capitol Books & Gifts, the museum gift shop located on the lower level, to get your free art button designed by an artist from Short Center North. Learn how the arts offers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity for self expression and personal fulfillment.

Meet Jenny, who has a disability and has worked at the gift shop for almost 30 years during which she has been photographed with three of California’s esteemed governors! DDSO’s President and CEO, Yvonne Soto, and Jenny will speak at the event between 11 am and noon. There will be performances, art making and more! Please helps us raise awareness of the value of the arts.
