SCHENECTADY - We often hear the phrase "people with disabilities," but an upcoming art show at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital is focusing on their "abilities."
The exhibition is open to the public for the month of October at the Schenectady facility, for viewing and sale. There will also be a fundraising event on October 12, emceed by NewsChannel 13's Benita Zahn.
