ALUT—Courageous Expressions In observance of Autism Awareness Month

by | Apr 9, 2018 | What’s Happening


Courageous Expressions is a mixed media, group exhibition based on a variety of works created by untrained artists from the Israeli Society for Autistic Children (the ALUT Institute), a leading care provider for individuals with autism in Israel.

The exhibition’s body of work is both uniquely beautiful and interestingly abstract, while individual works are supremely complex in depicting the expressive voice behind each piece. Often the artist’s only or more comprehensive voice, each exhibited piece warrants a narrative depth far beyond what meets the eye.

All pieces are for sale and can be purchased at the Simon Family JCC front desk. Proceeds from the sales of the Courageous Expressions exhibit will go towards additional art classes in the ALUT employment centers for young adults with severe autism in Israel, as an additional means of therapy and rehabilitation.
