This event was so much fun! Hundreds of folks came by to support the differently abled artists and entertainers and The Raventones. Check out the photos below, and then go to KindTree’s YouTube channel to see the Talent Show and more.
From a U of O student who received class credit by attending this event:
“By breaking down these barriers and allowing all kinds of people to gather together, laugh together, and express themselves together, it forms a positive and accepting space where these differences no longer define us.” This is what KindTree – Autism Rocks is all about!!
Join KindTree – Autism Rocks and Community Partners for an afternoon of Art of All Kinds!
Join KindTree and our many Community Partners as we present artistic creations of all kinds by people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Paintings, photography, beadwork and jewelry, performance art, and talent extraordinaire will be topped off with the Amazing Raventones featuring TR Kelley. Enjoy a great afternoon with snacks and treats and wine, cider and beer. If the weather is good Pizzaldo Pizza food cart will join us, and the OSLP Participatory Art Project will be outdoors!
Come visit the Very Little Theater, see artwork in the lobby and performances in the theater. Experience outstanding achievement that perhaps you didn’t think possible. Surprises are in store for you and your friends!
