The Visceglia Gallery at Caldwell College will hold a group exhibition by artists with autism from October 18 to November 12. The exhibition, Art From the Inside Out, will feature over 40 paintings, collage works, and drawings.

Arts Unbound is a non-profit organization dedicated to the artistic achievement of youth, adults and senior citizens with disabilities.
The show also is a way to kick off the Caldwell College Center for Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis, which is opening soon. The colleges says the center is a state-of-the-art facility that will provide cutting-edge intervention services for children with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

Caldwell College launched New Jersey;s first Ph.D. and Master of Arts programs in ABA, a science-based approach to learning that is very effective for teaching children with autism.
