Imagine Art is a creative community, established in 1997 to transform the lives of artists with disabilities. We operate in a place called ReNEW East, a creative incubator where artists gather to create, exhibit and be! In 2014, we opened our doors to invite non-disabled players into our creative space. Our services are expanding as we embrace the larger arts and disability communities of Austin and yet our vision and mission are focused on a distinct group of people, artists with disabilities.
Vision: To glorify God through the restored lives of artists with disabilities.
Mission: To transform the lives of artists with disabilities for His glory!
What We Do: We foster a creative community where artists with disabilities experience God through fine art studio services, ministry activities, and opportunities to serve others.
Our strategy is to set the artist F.R.E.E.
We Find artists willing to engage in authentic community.
We join God to Restore artists to abundant living.
We Equip artists to professionally access the arts
We Establish artists to be contributing members of community.
Imagine Art is a diverse community of people of different faiths, backgrounds, and artistic abilities.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”
