Art Gallery Exhibit: Autism is Not a Disease

My son Matthew with his project on Autism

"With it I'm paralyzed by apathy."
Matthew's Project Display; 1 of 20 at the show.
Hello everyone!  We just returned from this event in Chicago and wanted to post some pictures right away and share the awesome message my son, Matthew, had in his exhibit.  I had no idea what his was about until that day and could not be more proud of his display, his message, his talent and most of all his intelligent and heart!!  His younger brother, with a mild form of Autism, was extremely touched.

I will be posting more pictures from the exhibit later this week.   There were over 20 from my son's classmates at the Chicago Institute of Art, also on display.   Amazing talent of varying types were there!


  1. That is such an interesting and clever display.
