KaŽDý MůŽE být umĚLCEm/ Everyone Can Be an Artist

Exhibition of pictures painted by people with mental disabilities

KaŽDý MůŽE být umĚLCEm is a nationwide art competition organized by the Sulická Home for people with disabilities for all the people with mental disabilities from Czech Republic. The aim of the competition is to make their art visible.

“I’ve been saying for many years that everyone can be an artist, regardless of health status. I have personal experience with people with mental disabilities who paint brilliantly. Their works are often breathtaking,” explains Lenka Kohoutová, the director of the Sulická Home, which is the organizer. 

110 works of art from all over the country entered the competition, created by authors between the ages of 11 and 75 with various forms of mental disability.
