Presented by Mikayla’s Voice
Mikayla’s Voice is a local non-profit organization that inspires kids of all abilities to share the message of inclusion. This unique program allows children to paint not with brushes, but the wheels of a wheelchair and the paws and tail of a service dog. Thanks to Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts Project Stream grant* awarded by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council, and an invitation from Just Born, Mikayla’s Voice is excited to return with our unique Wheels of Friendship inclusive painting program. Once again we will paint with the wheels of a wheelchair and the paws of a therapy dog to include and visually represent persons with disabilities. In celebration of the event’s 10th Anniversary, we are excited to work with hundreds of children of all abilities from across the Lehigh Valley as we incorporate PEEPS® chicks and colored sugar into this year’s large scale collaborative artwork. The art-in-progress will be on display to remind thousands of visitors that you can always find a way to include all your “peeps” (in the creation of artwork and all life has to offer!)

*This project was supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
