Arts for Autism 2016 – East Liberty Event Photographer

The Arts for Autism event is held at the historic Kelly-Strayhorn Theater in East Liberty and features samplings of tasty food and beverages from local purveyors. Additionally, there is a fantastic silent auction full of art and fun prize baskets. My favorite part of the evening, though, is a variety of live performances interspersed with the videos the campers made at the previous year’s Joey Travolta Film Camp. It’s so fun to see the fun, smart, and engaging stories these young adults create in just one week’s time.
The Arts for Autism Foundation of Pittsburgh throws this event each year to raise money for that flagship program, Joey Travolta Film Camp. This is the second year I’ve photographed the event, and I hope to continue to do so in the coming years. I love the opportunity to support worthy causes in my community, particularly when they utilize the arts to improve the lives of others.
