Artists First: 25 Years of Studio Art at Thresholds
A celebration of Thresholds and its studio artists, and an initial grant made to Thresholds by the Nathan and Kiyoko Lerner Foundation in 1997 to support this program, "Artists First: 25 Years of Studio Art at Thresholds" introduces a compelling group of outstanding artists who are living with challenges and building from them daily; making work that speaks directly to our shared humanity and intersectional diversity.
