ECF’s Art Center has provided adults with developmental disabilities a nurturing artistic environment, professional art training, and studio facilities since 1968. Over the years, the Art Center has received numerous awards and is nationally recognized for leadership in demonstrating that developmentally disabled individuals have the ability to excel in producing fine art. Art Center participants range in age from 18 to 65 and often have multiple disabilities.

Our friends Adam, Jill, and Leroi showed up at the gallery opening.  Adam pointed out the shadows of the trees and traffic signs on the outside wall of the gallery during a full moon.  Not all the art was on the inside, after all.
