SculptureNow Brings Inspiration for CATA Writers with Disabilities

Because of your support, our CATA writers kicked off our fall Writers’ Workshop series with an interactive sculpture tour at The Mount!

The folks at SculptureNow gave our team of CATA writers a inside look at their sculpture exhibit throughout the grounds surrounding Edith Wharton’s historic home. The tour, especially designed for our CATA artists, allowed for up-close, tactile encounters with the artwork. For our writers with visual impairments, this made for a particularly powerful experience.

After the tour, our writers came together at the Stable at The Mount for a special session of our Writers’ Workshop where they used the sculptures as inspiration for a new writing project.

To top it off, an exhibit of artwork by CATA visual artists lined the walls of the Stable, making for a CATA-filled day at The Mount!

Thanks to SculptureNow for taking our CATA writers on a personalized, accessible tour, and thank to CATA supporters like YOU for giving our writers a chance to share their creative perspectives!
