Arts Unbound works with artists who are considered outsider artists, but not always because they are self-taught. They are all outsiders in a different sense of the word. They all either have physical, developmental, or mental disabilities, or they started their artistic work later in life and face the challenges of aging while remaining creative.
The nonprofit was founded 16 years ago by Cate Lazen, an artist and educator who saw a need for an arts organization with a serious vocational focus to promote careers in the arts for people with disabilities of all kinds. The group later added participatory arts programming for seniors when they saw that group too being denied quality instruction and support.
