Best Buddies Artist Collection
The Best Buddies Artist Collection showcases the image of Best Buddies through the eyes of renowned artists. Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Founder and Chairman of Best Buddies International, worked with prominent contemporary artist of the 1990s to create a vision of friendship, inspired by the Best Buddies mission to create opportunities for one-to-one friendships for individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
