Faces and Voices of Autism Exhibition Opens at the State House and Prudential Center

04/16/07

Faces and Voices of Autism, a unique photo exhibition that features individual photographs of children and adolescents with autism with personal stories told by special people in their lives, will debut at the Massachusetts State House (Doric Hall) on April 30 through May 4, in honor of Autism Advocacy Day. The personal stories, or “voices,” do not focus specifically on the child’s diagnosis, but on what makes him or her special.

The exhibit is presented by May Institute, a nonprofit organization that serves individuals with special needs, and the National Autism Center, in collaboration with Andrew Child Photography.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information about locations and times, please call 800-778-7601 or visit www.mayinstitute.org.
