Art Ability at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital is a year-long program which serves as a showcase for, and celebration of, artists with disabilities. Through art, we hope to inspire patients to reach beyond their limitations, and to encourage people with disabilities to explore their own creativity.

Established in 1996, Art Ability includes the following major components: an annual international juried exhibition and sale of art and fine crafts produced by individuals with disabilities; community outreach and education opportunities including satellite exhibitions and interactive demo days; our permanent collection of artwork and the incorporation of artwork into the patient experience; and a corporate art acquisition program.

The Program’s goal is to foster a better appreciation of people with disabilities through the achievements and stories of our artists. As art enriches their lives, we hope their creativity, talent and exuberant spirit will enrich your life.” – Art Ability

Max Tzinman was born in Romania and lived in Israel and Canada, immersing himself in a multitude of cultures that influenced his artistic/philosophical concepts. Born with a severe hearing impairment, photography has allowed Tzinman to consistently tell his story in a continuously moving world. Tzinman merges painting, photography, collage and assemblage, to produce a series of deep and mysterious images. Max Tzinman’s works often show the isolation and invisibility he felt of his early childhood experience dealing with his impairment.” – Art Ability

I recently received this e-mail:


I came across this page of your site: and I noticed you are linking to Center for Addictive Diseases Main Line Health (at, a provider of addiction treatment services in the Drexel Hill, PA area. Thank you for providing this resource for those seeking help – this is a mission I am deeply involved in as well.

I thought that you may be interested in adding our comprehensive collection of treatment options in Pennsylvania. If I may have just a moment of your time I wanted to suggest this Pennsylvania treatment options page: or this city-level page: for addition to your website. was originally built by content from Mark Dombeck, Ph.D. and Allan Schwart, Ph.D, clinical psychologists who aggregated countless studies, clinical best practices and research outcomes into an accessible resource for both professionals and individuals seeking help for mental health and substance abuse problems. They have personally written more than 1,500 responses to questions posed by users in the advice column. After the site’s launch in 1999, it quickly turned into a leading authority on behavorial health and has since received more than 40 million visits and a number of notable awards.

To further our mission of helping individuals with substance abuse problems, we have recently launched this comprehensive national directory of inpatient treatment options. In addition to this, we offer treatment advisors to help navigate the process. It has been a monumental undertaking to collect and verify all inpatient programs whether or not they have an online prescense. Scrolling down our page, you will find how extensive the listings we have gathered are. We believe that the end result provides the best Pennsylvania treatment compilation on the web.

I hope that you will consider this addition to your page – and thank you so much for your time. If you have the chance, please let me know what we need to do to be included as a resource. If you are not responsible for modifications to this page, I would greatly appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction.

Thank you,

I am very proud to have three artworks included in the 20th Annual Art Ability Art Exhibition and SaleBryn Mawr Rehab HospitalThe last time I was included in Art Ability my work was selected to be in group art shows at the Delaware Art Museum, The Philadelphia Foundation and pop up shows at rehab facilities. The exposure, the care, the intention is all about promoting art by artists living with physical challenges. Whenever I think about being part of Art Ability I remember my friend Arnie Segal, a successful sculptor. Arnie introduced me to the benefits of participating in the expansive art exhibition dedicated to art by disabled artists. I’ll post a story about my art in Art Ability on DoNArTNeWs. – DoN
