Art Through Her Eyes "Masterpiece"

ON VIEW: April 20 - June 22, 2024

In celebration of Autism Acceptance Month, The King Arts Complex is happy to announce Art Through Her Eyes: Masterpiece curated by Tommi Lee at the Elijah Pierce Gallery located at 835 Mt. Vernon Ave,
Columbus, OH.  April is Autism Acceptance Month and there are 5.8 million adults on autism
spectrum. Autism is a developmental condition that affects social skills, communication, language, and self-regulation according to the Autism Society of America. Art is essential to individuals on the spectrum because it improves engagement, inclusion, self-confidence, and active participation in the community.
