Two monumental milestones. One awesome celebration.

25 years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act extended civil rights to millions of Americans. 40 years ago, the Kennedy Center’s VSA opened its doors to provide arts and education opportunities for all people with disabilities. These are indeed powerful reasons to celebrate. And so we shall!

This is the 25/40 Celebration. Join us in DC this July—the Kennedy Center and the Smithsonian are offering a one-of-a-kind, cross-campus celebration. We are filling our stages, theaters, and public spaces with outstanding, free events to honor a culture of creativity, expression, and American heritage.
