Hundreds of people swarmed into the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Art & Cultural Museum on June 3 to celebrate the opening ceremony of “Expressions – An Exhibit by Exceptional Artists” that showcases artwork by special education youths from four organizations – The Art of Autism, Bridges Academy, Bacon Day School and Dominguez High School.
The Art of Autism is an international nonprofit organization that focuses on giving autistic artists global exposure. Located in Studio City, Bridges Academy is a leader in education for exceptional students in grades 4 through 12. Beacon Day School of Orange County is known for its unique art programs for exceptional students. The art program at Dominques High School headed by Pablo Holocwan is a special program dedicated to exceptional students. Besides the artists, teachers and parents from these organizations, many local mayors and councilmen were also present at the ceremony.
The museum has provided many opportunities for developing art talents in the community, especially for those with special needs, by holding exhibits and competitions since its opening. This art exhibit again provides an opportunity for these exceptional students to express their emotions through art, demonstrate their innate artistic abilities, cultivate a sense of accomplishment and strengthen their self-esteem. Visitors can receive free admission to the exhibition at the museum till June 10.
