Join VSA Ohio during our second summer at the Pearl Alley Farmers Market! The VSAO @ Pearl Market Merchant opportunity is an effort to provide artists with disabilities the opportunity to sell their art, become a self-advocate, and learn more about being a professional artist. Selling your art at community markets and festivals is a great way to connect with new patrons. However, the requirements for application, initial fees, and physical logistics can be cumbersome. To make this type of opportunity more accessible, VSA Ohio has secured a booth at the seasonal Pearl Alley Farmers Market in downtown Columbus. Artists and Groups from across Ohio may apply to be a Market Merchant at this booth for NO FEE. Read further for more information about applying to sell your work at this booth and be part of a fabulous local business opportunity!

2003 marked the fortieth anniversary of passing of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the disabilty community is beginning to plan for the 25th anniversary of the ADA in 2015.
