Martha is a long time supporter of the arts in North Carolina and we are thrilled to recognize her achievements in the arts at our 2019 Series of Fortunate Events. She was awarded the 2018 Raleigh Medal of Arts for her numerous accomplishments including her work at Arts Access, which include being an audio describer, serving on the board, and continuous financial support.  In the last five years, Martha has spearheaded an art exhibit and contest at the Raleigh Woman's Club featuring artists with disabilities. We are grateful for Martha!

Arts Access’ mission is to make the arts accessible to children and adults with disabilities.

Arts Access is North Carolina’s only non-profit organization dedicated solely to making the arts accessible to people with disabilities. Founded in 1984 by a group of dedicated volunteers, Arts Access has grown to serve over 2500 North Carolinians annually and to be nationally recognized for its work at the intersection of arts and disability.

Arts Access has spent the past 35 years advocating for the rights of people with disabilities, working with cultural arts organizations to build inclusive programming, and working with schools to ensure K-12 arts curriculum is inclusive of kids with disabilities.
