MSAA is very proud to present the final piece in our 2018-19 Art Showcase – celebrating the work of artists affected by multiple sclerosis (MS), like Patricia (below) who is a Wisconsin artist with multiple sclerosis.

We received many wonderful submissions from across the country and are delighted to share their work and their stories with you. Please visit our online gallery to view all of the submissions…and get ready next month for a new MS Art Showcase for 2019!
