“Drawing Autism” Book Release Party & Art Exhibit Next Week – February 4!
January 29, 2010
Join MBP as we celebrate the release of DRAWING AUTISM! The event will feature a discussion on art and autism, a signing by the book’s author, NYCCD employee Jill Mullin, and an extraordinary art exhibition by individuals on the autistic spectrum, taking place at the New York Center for Child Development (328 East 62nd Street (between 1st & 2nd Ave)).
About the book we’ll be celebrating:
DRAWING AUTISM celebrates the artistry and self-expression found in the drawings, paintings and collages created by individuals diagnosed with autism. The work of over 50 international contributors exhibits unique perspectives on how these individuals see the world and their places in it.
Author Jill Mullin, a behavior analyst and educator, has assembled a staggering array of work from established artists like Gregory Blackstock, Jessica Park and Ping Lian Yeak to the unknown but no less talented. Their creations, coupled with artist interviews, comprise a fascinating and compelling book that makes visual how autism manifests differently in every diagnosis.
Mullin’s introduction and the foreword by best-selling author Temple Grandin provide an overview of autism and advocate for nurturing the talents, artistic and otherwise, of autistic individuals.
A portion of the proceeds from DRAWING AUTISM will be donated to a selection of agencies that support art and autism.
