About

Happy 30th Birthday ABS!

Art Beyond Sight (ABS) a 501(c)(3) organization supports access and inclusion to arts and culture, recreation, sports and entertainment, for people with any physical or cognitive disability, or mental health condition. Our service to the NYC community informs the resources, training, and personalized advice we provide to the nation for the full integration of people with disabilities.

Our collaborative approach to research and exploration of innovative, effective, and impactful solutions has realized advances in multi-sensory learning and disability inclusion which are now standard practice.

Whether a person is born into disability or acquires one later in life due to injury, illness, or age, 56 million Americans with physical, cognitive disabilities or mental health conditions, and 1 billion individuals worldwide living with a disability, deserve the opportunity for full participation and employment.
