Art of Possibilities Art Show & Sale is a project of the Allina Health Foundation and Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute (CKRI). It is one of only a handful of juried art shows in the world exclusively featuring artists with disabilities.  Held every year since 1963, the Art Show & Sale is a much-anticipated celebration of fine arts attracting hundreds of artists and thousands of visitors from Minnesota and around the world. The Art of Possibilities Art Show & Sale provides a forum for artists with disabilities to sell their work, promotes the talents of artists with disabilities, and creates a cherished and inclusive community event for people of all abilities.


The annual Art of Possibilities Art Show & Sale began in 1963 and was known then as the Art Show for Disabled Artists. The art show was the very first of its kind anywhere in the world. The first show attracted 42 artists from eight countries and four continents. Since then, Art of Possibilities has become a major showcase of fine art and has attracted thousands of artists from nearly 50 countries.


Nearly 200 artists with disabilities showcase their art each year. Artwork is reviewed on-site by a jury of professional artists, collectors, influencers, educators in the local arts community.  All art is original, completed in the last three years and available for sale.


Art of Possibilities Art Show & Sale embodies Allina Health’s vision of Whole Person Care bringing together mind, body, spirit, and community into the healing process. Art goes beyond physical health and benefits patients, families, caregivers, and all of us who experience it. The Art of Possibilities Art Show & Sale celebrates the abilities of artists and inspires individuals who come to Courage Kenny for therapy and rehabilitation who face similar barriers.
