JSDD’s WAE Center is pleased to announce that works of art from its 2016 “Identity and Personality Project” are featured prominently in the Rutgers NJ Medical School Annual Collaborative Art Exhibition.

Each piece in this large scale mixed-media exhibit of collages and portraits was created by a team of WAE Center members in collaboration with lead artist and facilitator Tim Folzenlogen.

Folzenlogen, a nationally known artist, speaks movingly about his inspiration for the project and the process through which it was accomplished.

“My initial idea was to create life-size figures of various members, and keep adding more until our time was up. I wanted to totally populate the space.

“The figure drawings began in the Meditation Room, where I hung the paper on the wall and shined a spotlight on each person as he or she stood before it. I then traced the silhouette.

“I don’t know what it is about that traced outline, but it does, indeed, capture something of that individual’s life force. There’s something magical about it.”

The WAE Center is one of five organizations represented in this annual collaborative show. Each of the five has a thriving program where individuals with disabilities are empowered to create

fine art: JSDD’s WAE Center, Matheny’s Arts Access Program, The Arc/Mercer, Inc, Arts Unbound and The Hattie Larlham Creative Arts Program.
