What a spectacular event in the Miami Downtown Arts District at McCormick Place, Autism Awareness Art Night was held on March 6, 2015 from 6-10pm in the heart of Downtown Miami. The event was hosted in collaboration with the University of Miami Center for Autism and Related Disabilities – (UM-NSU CARD), which is an organization that provides support and assistance with the goal of optimizing the potential of people with autism and related disabilities.
It was an awesome night of art, entertainment and festivities. Thank you to McCormick Place for such a successful event, also a very big thank you to Miami Art Scene™ for the strong media coverage and support! I attached some snippets from social media posts about the event –> “A recap of our March #autismawareness art night event here at#McCormickPlaceMiami!! Thank you to all participants!

The evening was wonderful and I’m so proud to have been honored at this Autism Awareness Art Night. I donated a piece to charity and all proceeds from the event benefit the UM NSU CARD – Center for Autism and Related Disabilities.
