Take the Virtual Tour

Visit IAHD's Online Art Gallery and EXPLORE the Artists Within.  "I Am More Than a Definition" presents works by Artists of IAHD.

This exhibit is a comprehensive look into the creative potential of the human spirit. Each piece represents a journey through the artists' internal emotional landscape, drawing the viewer in to witness the unique worlds of the heart and mind; reminding us of the spaces we all inhabit within our own selves.

Our Current virtual exhibit "I AM MORE THAN A DEFINITION" – was created to showcase and highlight the works done by artists with disabilities.
Each piece is as unique and powerful as the person who created it.
