Artist Statement

This art piece represents both disability inclusion and the power of diversity. The varying chairs are a metaphor for the different types of people among us, including those with disabilities and those without. Each chair represents a different type of person, each with their space in the circle, which signifies belonging and unity. Different types of seating are included in the circle to encourage various types of people to sit and join together.
