VSA is now Arts for All Wisconsin

As part of a rebranding initiative, the organization formerly known as Very Special Arts Wisconsin has changed its name to Arts for All Wisconsin.

Over the years, the name of the 34-year-old organization has changed from Very Special Arts Wisconsin to VSA arts Wisconsin to VSA Wisconsin. No matter what it’s called, its mission remains the same — to involve people with disabilities in the arts.

The latest change was made to better reflect its mission and to help explain that mission. According to an article in The Capital Times, it was hard for executive leaders at VSA Wisconsin to make an elevator pitch when its name alone required too much explanation.
