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.
