One River School of Art + Design in collaboration with the Galleria at White Plains in White Plains, NY will exhibit 50 paintings by our students at One River School in Larchmont, NY, to help raise awareness for Autism Speaks and the Light it Up Blue April Initiative. The project, a large scale painted puzzle installation will be displayed in the entrance of the food court at The Galleria at White Plains. Student paintings reflect the concept of “awareness,” using this as the overarching theme for their paintings along with the iconic light bulb and puzzle piece.
The event is an opportunity for the public to support the Autism Speaks mission of promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. The event and artworks help students, parents and our Westchester audience to increase their understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder along with an opportunity to contribute to the mission. One River School will raise money for Autism Speaks by accepting donations during the event, all proceeds will go to Autism Speaks and the Light it up Blue Campaign.
Join us for the opening reception of The Puzzle Project exhibition at the Galleria at White Plains on Thursday, April 26th, from 6-8PM, light refreshments will be served. The exhibition will be displayed at the entrance of the food court and will remain on display through May 2018.
