Norwich Family YMCA to host first-ever “Art of Me” exhibit

NORWICH – The Norwich Family YMCA will play host to a display of artwork created with a unique touch as the first ever “Art of Me” exhibit is unveiled at 5 p.m. Friday in the YMCA lobby on Mechanic Street in Norwich.



Art and Me, coordinated by local artist Jill Kraft, owner of the Artists’ Pallet in Norwich, is a unique art program geared toward using art as an expressive tool for individuals with developmental disabilities. Since May, Kraft has been working with local agencies for the developmentally disabled, including the Friends Learning Activities for Social and Health Benefits (FLASH) Program (a collaborative program for autistic children between Spring Brook and the Norwich YMCA, and funded through the RC Smith Foundation) and Chenango County Community Mental Hygiene Services’ Chenango Club (a program for individuals who, as a result of their mental illness, experience social withdrawal, social vulnerability, and difficulty managing daily activities).
