The exhibit is put on by the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities and features seven artists living with autism.

The artwork ranges from drawings, hand crafted flutes, even airplanes.

“What we want everyone in the community to see is individuals with autism have capabilities. They have talents. There are many things they can do and contribute to their community around them,” said Leatzow.

The exhibit runs until March 23rd. That evening the museum will host a performances reception from 5:30pm-7:30pm featuring 4 of the 7 artists.
