VSA was founded in 1974, and has grown to have 52 affiliates around the world.
The organization strives to create artistic opportunities for people with disabilities.
More than 900 people in Genesee County create works of art through VSA programs, including Stephen Broadworth of Swartz Creek.
Stephen has fought through developmental disabilities to start his own banner making company.
Sunday, he officially became a featured artist.
"It just probably brought a new point of view of me," said Stephen, who proudly showed off his water painting to friends and family.
"It allows them a way to express themselves through different mediums. Maybe through dance, maybe through painting or visual art," said Genesee County VSA Co-Chair Megan Pajtas.
The artwork is on display inside the Art Sales & Rental Gallery, and is available to purchase.
Works range in price from $20 to several hundred dollars.
