I attended an exhibit of works done by the MAP participants at La Pena in December. Not only was the artwork beautiful, it was really amazing to see the pride in the artists' faces. It seems as if there are so many opportunities for kids, and it's great to see an organization that focuses on the elderly and the disabled. They do great work in Austin!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

by listening to the artists discuss their work at an exhibit.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that it focuses on an underserved segment of Austin that would not otherwise have access to these services.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

FANTASTIC!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way the elderly and disabled are viewed in Texas.

The Mobil Art Program (MAP) is an outstanding organization that enables elderly and disabled adults to express themselves through art. As a professor at St. Edwards University, I have had students volunteer their time assisting the organization (as part of course requirements) and share their rewarding experinces with me. I also currently sit on the MAP board.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the art openings where the ederly/disabled adults display their artwork.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
