HANDICAPPED ARTISTS PAINT USINIG THEIR MOUTHS OR FEET
Holidays are coming and there are many greeting cards in the stores created by handicapped artists. Their creations have been published for the last 18 years by the publishing house UMUN in Liberec. Also available are artistic calendars and a listing of holidays coming up in 2012.
The Liberec publishing house was founded in 1993 and is connected to a world-wide handicapped artist association located in Lichtenstein and founded by A.F. Stegman.
Similar associations exist now in 60 countries. They exhibit and sell the works of talented handicapped artists and also help them through scholarships and financial support. In Prague such exhibits were organized in the Klementinum, at the Franz Kafka Gallery, and at the Strahov Monastery. Exhibits also took place e.g. in Jablonec, Turnov, Marianske Lazne, Ostrava, Sumperk, Ceske Budejovice, and elsewhere.
The Liberec UMUN also cooperates with writers and poets. Thus the artistic calendars contain their verses and poems which the artists themselves select to complement their illustrations.Miroslav Sigl
