About Visibility Arts
The Visibility Arts program began over 14 years ago out of a desire to provide opportunities for self-expression, creativity and achievement for adults with developmental disabilities. Visibility Arts is a comprehensive visual arts program that offers a combination of group learning experiences and hands-on studio time. Classes take place in a 7,000 square foot space in Mt. Prospect that includes fully equipped studio facilities and a spacious gallery for exhibitions. In addition, Visibility Arts programming is also offered at Search's Chicago and Waukegan locations.


Lessons cover all aspects of artistic expression including color theory, art history, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Recent additions to the growing curriculum include Collaborative Art, Collaborative Sculpture and Portraits. Individuals in the program meet and learn from other local artists. Visibility Artists also enjoy regular opportunities to show and sell their work in a variety of galleries and public venues.

Visibility Arts is in an exciting period of expansion and is seeking to build relationships with local artists, businesses and galleries. Our two newest initiatives are the creation of an Advisory Board and a Visiting Artist Program. The Advisory Board will meet on a quarterly basis to support the upstart of a variety of projects. The Visiting Artist program is seeking local artists to teach a class in their chosen medium with the goal of enriching and diversifying the artistic experiences of Visibility Arts participants.
