The ReelAbilities: Houston Film & Arts Festival is an annual event celebrating people with disabilities through film, art, and music.

This year’s event includes ReelArt, an exhibit showcasing artwork created by adults with disabilities who work at Celebration Company, a local entrepreneurial program from Jewish Family Service.

The exhibit is on display through April 19 at The Center for Art and Photography at Celebration Company, located at 4131 S. Braeswood Blvd.

In the audio above, Houston Matters producer Joshua Zinn visits Celebration Company to meet Jamie Weiner, the organization’s director, to talk with some of the artists whose work is on display, and to tour their facility.
