Opulent Mobility asks you to re-imagine disability! The challenge is to imagine a world where mobility, disability, and access are not merely functional, but opulent.

Opulent Mobility 2019 is now online. We will start taking submissions for next year’s exhibit at UCPLA’s Washington Reid Gallery in March of 2020.

This year’s physical exhibit will be at the Dora Stern Gallery at Arts Unbound September 14th- October 19th.

“Opulent Mobility is a groundbreaking international exhibit of art, designs and inventions dealing with disability and mobility.

Wheelchairs, walkers, prosthetics, crutches and other assistive technology devices are part of our lives, but they’ve been left in the dust when it comes to custom design innovation and personalization. There are hundreds of thousands of designs for glasses, chairs and technology of other kinds. Why not assistive technology?
