Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities Presents Art Exhibit in Honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

In celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities will present a public art exhibit of past and current NDEAM posters and original artwork October 10 through 14 on the Ground Floor Rotunda of the Texas State Capitol.

NDEAM helps raise awareness of disability issues and provides employers with information about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities.

Each year, the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities sponsors a competition for the art that will be featured on Texas' NDEAM poster. Any Texas artist with a disability is eligible to submit artwork, and a team of judges decides on the winner.

Patricia Hiebeler of Houston is the 2011 poster artist, whose painting titled "Me and My Bike" tells the story of the value of perseverance in the face of obstacles.

The Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities works to ensure Texans with disabilities may live their lives with integrity, independence and productivity, and promotes compliance with disability laws, recommends policy changes and supports local committees with similar purposes.

Gov. Perry has declared October Persons with Disabilities History and Awareness Month in Texas. To view the governor's proclamation, please visit governor.state.tx.us/news/proclamation/16649/
