HeART of the Spectrum's Exhibit

Posted on: Wednesday, April 11, 2012 - 3:35pm


April is National Autism Awareness Month

This month is National Autism Awareness Month and the AS Disability Outreach Center is displaying art from the HeART of the Spectrum's artists on the autistic spectrum, based in Seattle.  The exhibit is located in Wilson Library’s Gallery 1, just off the Skybridge, and will run through the end of the month.

 The exhibit is also meant to bring awareness to the 5th annual Disability Awareness Week. Disability Awareness Week is a weeklong series of events meant to educate students on disability issues as well as help create a sense of community. I would also encourage you to check out socialstripes.com, a greeting card website dedicated to supporting adult artists living with autism.

 To find out more about the Disability Outreach Center or Disability Awareness Week head over to Viking Union 528 or send us an email at as.disability@wwu.edu
