The Museum of Work & Culture will host Through Our Eyes, an exhibit by the Rhode Island Consortium for Autism Research & Treatment (RI-CART).
All of the work on display was created by artists with autism and related conditions and will be exhibited through April 24 as part of the MoWC’s events planned for Autism Awareness Month. The exhibit highlights the creativity and talent of people with autism, providing viewers the unique opportunity to see the world through their eyes. This year’s entries offers the artists’ perspectives on home. The show is curated by Hartford, Conn.-based artist Matthew Best.
A public opening reception for the exhibit will take place on Saturday, March 14, from 1 to 3pm. The reception will include light refreshments and additional performance-based works.
This event is also part of Brain Week Rhode Island (March 14-22), a week-long celebration of brain health and brain science for Rhode Islanders of all ages. Creative learning activities and events include expert panels, talks, film screenings, workshops, and a Brain Fair with interactive science exhibits. For more brainy fun, visit BrainWeekRI.org.
