In-Definite Arts

After Jane's death in January 2000, her mother searched for a method that would:

  • Provide a permanent repository for Jane's works,
  • Make her work available for study by artists and those interested in people with Down syndrome,
  • Encourage people with Down syndrome to become involved in the arts

After considering several possibilities, Mrs. Cameron's vision was presented to the Board of Directors of the In-Definite Arts Society (IDAS). It was agreed that the archives would become a part of IDAS. Jane had been a valued Artist at In-Definite Arts for many years. Since 1975, IDAS has provided instruction in the arts for artists with disabilities. There are many advantages to this arrangement. The Jane Cameron Archives has a permanent home at a reasonable cost and the not-for-profit status of IDAS had long been established. IDAS has a showcase for the works of a gifted artist who happened to have a disability.
