Souders art benefits Christopher Reeve Foundation
For 5 years in a row, Randy Souders lent his artwork to the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation. The last project involved the publication of 3,050,000 (three million, fifty thousand) calendars featuring one of his images. These were mailed to supporters across America and around the world. Proceeds assisted researchers in their quest to find a cure for paralysis due to spinal cord injury and disease. Randy Souders suffered a spinal cord injury in 1972 and has been confined to a wheelchair since then.

What does Randy Souders have in common with stars the likes of Nathan Lane, Carol Burnett, Mike "Austin Powers" Myers, Bernadette Peters, Tommy Tune, Phyllis Newman, Tom "Dukes of Hazard" Wopat and others? Well it certainly isn't a talent for singing! Rather, he has been called on to dust off his old talent for characture in order to create the cover art for a two CD set featuring a revival of the Broadway musical "SHERRY!"
VSA International Arts Festival
Every 5 years VSA arts brings together artists, educators, researchers, and policy makers with disabilities from around the world for a multicultural celebration of the arts and arts education. These festivals feature visual, performing, literary, media artists and a guest list that includes over two thousand participants from all corners of the globe.
Highlights of the 2010 festival included Dame Evelyn Glennie, the Scottish virtuoso percussionist, performing with the National Symphony Orchestra; internationally renowned educational innovator Sir Ken Robinson, the jazz stylings of Diane Schuur, R&B legend Patti LaBelle, Last Comic Standing season four winner Josh Blue, and renowned actors Claire Danes (Romeo + Juliet), and Marlee Matlin (Children of a Lesser God/The L Word).
VSA arts also convened an international arts education conference. Geared towards professional educators and working artists, the conference focused upon advancing inclusive education through the arts and hosted a career development forum for artists with disabilities.
In addition to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, venues such as the Smithsonian Institution, the Atlas Performing Arts Center, the H Street Playhouse, and the D.C. IMPROV all showcased performances and exhibitions.
The International VSA arts Festival is a four-day extravaganza held every five years in select cities around the globe such as Los Angeles, California and Brussels, Belgium. Once again it was Washington D.C.'s turn to host this dazzling display of creativity by artists with disabilities. The VSA arts Festival is a production of VSA arts, which is creating a society where people with disabilities can learn through, participate in and enjoy the arts.
VSA arts (an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC) is an international nonprofit organization that provides opportunities in the arts for people with disabilities. Founded in 1974 by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith, VSA arts reaches nearly 5 million people around the world through a network of affiliates in 49 states and 64 countries.
Randy Souders served on the VSA arts national board of directors from 1990 till 2005 at which time a formal re-merger with the Kennedy Center took place. To learn more about VSA arts and its programs and events, please visit their website at http://www.kennedy-center.org/education/vsa/.
