Join us for a unique opportunity to enjoy art made by adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Their art creates awareness and serves to advocate for the developmentally disabled community. We couldn’t be more proud of these artists’ abilities. Through our mission at Valley Educational Associates, we strive to uplift and encourage our participant’s creative energies.
We hope you will stop by for some falafel and stay for the art!

We're excited to welcome Jeffrey Richard to the Holyoke Hummus Cafe for our next art exhibit. Join us on Thursday, May 3, for the opening of his show.
Jeffrey Richard is a Holyoke native who has always been inspired by the world and city around him. He began taking pictures of the city’s architecture and graffiti art in high school and hasn’t stopped since. Over the years, he’s experimented with photos and reclaimed materials to make his photos take on new forms. This showing is a demonstration of those experiments that include frames made of reclaimed railroad materials and vintage-style posters and photos of known Holyoke landmarks. You can find Jeff walking around obscure parts of Holyoke with his camera because there’s always something new to capture.
