As a museum professional, always looking for new ways of engaging new audiences and displaying art that represents a broad spectrum of artists, cultures and times, Alexander's Angels provided me with the opportunity to learn about and work with Down Syndrome artists and advocates in an inspiring and creative way. The opportunity to display art at museums and galleries, to invite the artists and their families and to sell their artwork is an example of necessary practices that show the world the value of the work of the artists' involved and creates new ways of understanding Down Syndrome. It has been a privilege and pleasure to work with a small organization that works so hard to present to the world in a very professional way the contributions of individual's with Down Syndrome. Examples of the different exhibitions are • Hutchins Gallery, LIU/C.W. Post - January 14 - 31, 2009, Reception, January 18, 2009. • Casa Frela, NYC - March 14 - April 4, 2009. Reception, March 14,2009• Soapbox Gallery, Brooklyn - April 2011 • Community Gallery, Port Washington Library - Sept. 1 - Sept 30, 2011. Reception Sept. 2, 2012 • 28on27, NYC, March 21 to 29, 2012.
