There are dozens of programs in town that connect people with disabilities to art and artists, but not many that include a chance to show the work created at a world-class museum. Clients of Partnership Resources Inc. have that honor tonight at an exhibit and reception from 5 to 9 p.m. in the Skyline Room.  Last year, the PRI clients were given a guided tour of the exhibit "This WIll Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s" and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, then set about using what they saw to create paintings, sculpture, videos and  installations of their own.Tonight is a Target Free Thursday, so admission to the entire museum is free.
