Were very proud to
announce that Artism: Art By Those With Autism won the Global Book Award for December 2003, which provides a $25,000
marketing campaign for the book.
Artism was created
after we invited input from audiences on both the Autism Today and the Autism Arts websites. We received a flood of responses
from artists with Autism Spectrum Disorders and we were bowled over by the quantity and the quality of submissions. Eventually,
of course, we had to narrow them down to the showpieces you find within Artism's pages. The gifts of Donna Williams,
Mark Rimland, Amin Collins, and 41 other inspiring artists are represented within Artism's covers.
This was a labour of love for
Karen Simmons and for all of us at Autism Today. Karen was inspired by three wonderful artists in her life representing three
generations of talent... her mother www.artbymitzi.com, her sister www.mostlygraphics.com, and her son Jonathon Sicoli.
The award confirms that people
on the autistic continuum have beautiful contributions to make to our world. Purchase your own copy and see for yourself!
