Unity Blooms is a unique line of collaborative art pieces that beautifully display the innovation, creativity and teamwork found at Studio 190. Each UB flower is an original, created by artists of various backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. These sweet botanical treasures represent a spirit of inclusion, cooperation, and unity.” The UB collection provides each artist with the opportunity to have their individual talents beautifully represented.
The Arc of Delaware County exists so that people with disabilities will live personally fulfilling lives. The studio supports over 40 artists, each offering their own unique skill set. Providing an encouraging, educational and enjoyable environment allows for individual and collective creativity to flourish. Studio 190 is a fairly young studio. It was established in late 2016 with the help of professional consultants. With a passionate, dedicated team in place Studio 190 has experienced remarkable growth in a short amount of time. By utilizing up-cycled and recycled materials, the studio showcases its innovative approach to art. Magazines become sculptures, donated aluminum becomes flowers, drop clothes become canvases, and imagination becomes reality. Thinking big and dreaming big are tools for success in most arenas and Studio 190 is no exception. Artists are encouraged to reach beyond what seems possible, to engage in the creative process as a vehicle for self-expression and personal growth.
