Every year, The Arc Otsego hosts a statewide juried art show, VOICE!, for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Normally the event would take place up on the SUNY Oneonta campus in the Martin-Mullen Art Gallery with an opening reception on Friday evening to kick off the show. The COVID-19 pandemic had other plans for us this year. We were determined to still host the show so we figured out a way to host it virtually! We had 30 different artists participate from six different agencies across New York State. Here’s the link to view the show: https://www.flipsnack.com/arcotsego/voice-16/full-view.html
