Tervis Partners with Two Can Art for Collection to Benefit Autism Speaks
Artwork by a talented group of young artists with disabilities from Washington, DC will go on display starting Thursday and running through March 20 at The Corcoran Community Gallery. Entitled "The Art of Movement," the show was created by the St. John's Community Service Arts Option Program. Jessica Hopkins, an Art Instructor at St. John's, explains the show:
The theme for this show focuses on art communicating and channeling energy through movement. A number of people consider movement as something only conveyed through a figure or object.
The Nashville celebrity and arts community has joined together to support Autism Speaks, Tennessee Communities, by designing original artwork made from puzzle pieces that will be auctioned at the first annual Master Pieces for Autism Speaks benefit on December 1, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Nashville City Center in downtown Nashville.
