Standing‐room‐only audiences inspired and entertained by the grittiest troupes of actors, singers and dancers to ever take the stage . . . original art created by talented artists hanging in galleries, homes & offices across Florida and beyond.
People with developmental disabilities painstakingly applying the principles of art each day; others rigorously rehearsing sophisticated choreography.
Artists and performers who may never before have had a social role seeing themselves as painters, sculptors, artists, or actors, singers or dancers. . . earning art commissions & performance fees . . . brimming with pride...
Still others with less perceived talent being exposed to the arts, gaining an appreciation for the arts, using art techniques to develop holistic life skills, talking for the first time, participating in group activities and projects, moving long dormant limbs, engaging in activities that have meaning for them.
Families talking with pride about their family members’ accomplishments . . . admiring art patrons seeing beyond the disability to see the ability.
This is the reality every day at Pyramid’s five Florida programs, in Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Tallahassee and Tampa.
The arts program is a meaningful day for some . . . an epiphany for others.
