The Can-Man Show, curated by Anne Trauben, with special help by Rainbow Thursdays Manager, Jill Scipione, is an exhibition of Outsider Artworks made by our Rainbow Thursdays Artists who create out of their own personal vision and inner drive and are not professionally trained. They work "outside" the professional art and scholastic world. The Rainbow Thursdays Artists program consists of about 40 adults with disabilities who meet with us every week at the Windmill Center in Bayonne for a two-hour art making session. We provide them with art materials and source materials, such as art books and postcards and photo books and we guide them in developing their own artistic vision. The opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork to family, friends and many supporters in the community allows our Rainbow Thursdays Artists to become visible and valued in a new way.
