Bodies of Work

Using art to illuminate the disability experience

Bodies of Work is a network of artists and organizations whose art showcases and celebrates the disability experience. From the local to the international, our bodies of work explore innovative forms of artistic expression, derived from unique bodies and minds. We explore the disability experience, advance the rights of disabled people, and widen society’s understanding of what it means to be human.

We are a consortium of more than 50 of Chicago‚Äôs most recognized cultural, academic, healthcare and social service organizations, and are housed in UIC’s Department of Disability and Human Development.

The program is under construction and a new site is being built.
