April is National Autism Awareness Month and in partnership With Fullerton Cares, Art With An Agenda, and co-curator Janelle Ferrara, 30 local artists are celebrating those in our community who are diagnosed with Autism through the power of art. Up to 50 works of art will be up for silent auction with 100% of the proceeds going a great local non profit named Fullerton Cares.

The show will raise awareness and funds for those affected with autism with the goal of including all people of all abilities into the local community and will feature 25-30 established Southern California artists donating their art for a silent auction showcasing the generous spirit and creative talent of the visual arts community.

This event is open to the public, with free parking and free refreshments. The event is open to people of all abilities and all ages, though some material may be more oriented for an adult audience.

ABOUT FULLERTON CARES: Awareness, acceptance and fundraising are the pillars of Fullerton Cares, which spreads the message of autism throughout North Orange County and was founded by Lawrence Houser, father to Boyd Houser, 5, who was diagnosed with autism at age two. Fullerton Cares was founded in 2009 and has raised over $53,000 to support autism initiatives.

ABOUT AUTISM: Affecting 1 in every 88 American children, autism is a complex condition that affects a person’s ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by behavioral challenges.

ABOUT ART WITH AN AGENDA: With past art shows tackling issues such as the police beating of mentally ill homeless man Kelly Thomas, marriage equality, pet adoption and the mounting medical bills of a downtown Fullerton Merchant battling cancer, ‘Art with an Agenda’ is deeply committed to helping the community and local charitable organizations.

Hope to see you there!
