The ex­hibit

was con­ceived by artist David Peter­son, who in­stalled the tiles like a color spec­trum, which, Stevens says, is in­tended to rep­re­sent the autism spec­trum. While Peter­son came up with the idea for painted tiles and cre­ated the in­stal­la­tion, the artists were 100% re­spon­si­ble for the themes they chose, Stevens says.

The ce­ramic tiles will be on dis­play un­til May 28, af­ter which they will be avail­able for pur­chase by the pub­lic at $150 each. The funds will go to sup­port the Mar­cus Autism Cen­ter’s artist-in-res­i­dence pro­gram, the Spec­trum Autism Sup­port Group and the Greater Ge­or­gia Chap­ter of the Autism So­ci­ety of Amer­ica—the three groups that col­lab­o­rated on the ex­hibit.

The artist known as Reece, 8, poses next to some of the tiles that are part of the autis­tic artists ex­hibit in Ge­or­gia.
