ArtMix uses the arts to create opportunities for those with disabilities

Focusing on a person’s ability, not their disability. That’s the mindset of ArtMix and its mission to transform the lives of people with disabilities through creating art. March is Disability Awareness Month, and today on Indy Style, Linda Wisler, Vice President of Programs of ArtMix, explains more about a program that’s doing more than just giving back.
