April is National Autism Awareness Month, and the Associated Students Disability Outreach Center is displaying art from the HeART of the Spectrum's artists on the autistic spectrum, based in Seattle.
The exhibit is located in Wilson Library’s Gallery 1, just off the skybridge, and will run through the end of the month.
The exhibit is also meant to bring awareness to the fifth annual Disability Awareness Week, a series of events meant to educate students on disability issues as well as help create a sense of community.
