The ART of AUTISM features artists from around the world. Their mission is to find places and spaces for artists on the spectrum to be seen and heard. This exhibit at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center organized by The Art of Autism features participating artists from Tennessee and neighboring states.
The ART of AUTISM (www.the-art-of-autism.com) is a socialentrepreneurship project that connects artists and performers of all ages on the autism spectrum with opportunities and venues to showcase their varied talents. They help artists through mentorships, building resumés, portfolios, and direct work experience in the arts.
By showcasing the artistic gifts of people on the spectrum, the ART of AUTISM inspires the general public, gives hope to parents of children on the spectrum, and provides selfadvocates with tools for professional development.
