About Art Beyond Boundaries…

Art Beyond Boundaries initially was the brainchild of Lin Laing, the former executive director of CILO, an agency empowering people with disabilities since 1977. ABB was created as CILO’s inclusive art program and mainstream fine-art exhibition gallery where artists with disabilities can enhance their artistic and professional skills.  

Since 2005, ABB has assisted hundreds of artists with disabilities by providing a professional mainstream exhibition venue where artists can establish themselves. Each year the gallery hosts several themed exhibitions that demonstrate a range of talents and skills spanning every medium.

Throughout ABB’s history on Main Street, our program has established a standard of excellence recognized by the Greater Cincinnati art community. ABB has cultivated a reputation among artists with and without disabilities as one of the region’s premiere exhibition venues.

“I was really encouraged by my sister and others to continue painting and sharing. My exhibition at Art Beyond Boundaries was called Child’s Play. It is very playful in nature. I did not want any restraint on how I created.”
