The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana, in partnership with the St. Mary’s Center for Children, the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, and the ARC of Evansville will proudly present The Art of Autism from October 13th through 27th, 2016. The exhibit will feature artwork by individuals on the autism spectrum and will highlight their talent and creativity from childhood through adulthood.
The arts have the capacity to inspire and enrich all lives, regardless of condition or diagnosis. Opening up arts spaces to individuals on the autism spectrum, giving them a unique platform for self-expression and storytelling, and celebrating their valuable and purposeful lives, is to the benefit of our entire community.
The exhibit, part of the Art and Science of Autism Spectrum Conference presented by St. Mary’s Center for Children, will open with a free, public reception and brief presentation by Dr. Mark Osteen. The gallery will open from 5-7:30 PM on Thursday, October 13. Dr. Osteen will speak at 6 PM for approximately thirty minutes on the topic of autism spectrum and the visual arts. The exhibit will remain open until October 27. For more information about the exhibit, including additional information on submissions, please contact the Arts Council at (812) 422-2111.
