Telfair Museums celebrates its 17th year with I Have Marks to Make-a longstanding exhibition bringing together work by young and old to celebrate the healing and therapeutic power of art. Featuring art by individuals with disabilities and those who are in rehabilitation from traumatic injury or illness, the I Have Marks to Make 2011 exhibition will include work from community partners including the Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial University Medical Center, St. Joseph’s/Candler Rehabilitation, Life Inc., Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools Department of Exceptional Children, City of Savannah’s Therapeutics Program, the Savannah Speech and Hearing Center, The Savannah Association for the Blind Inc., Goodwill’s ADVANCE Acquired Brain Injury Support Group, and others. Many works in the exhibition are produced as part of Telfair’s Art for All program, which receives project funding from the City of Savannah. The exhibition opens with a reception on Sunday, December 4, that includes a program of poetry readings and a performance, which are free and open to the public.
