Nothing is sure to bring Charlestonians together like art except when the art also benefits a charity such as Autism Speaks, the leading autism research and science organization. This organization works toward treatments and a cure, as well as raising awareness about the effects and varieties of autism. The Masterpieces for Autism is an art auction held in three major cities, including Nashville, Little Rock and Charleston.

The artwork in the auction is all created by artists who have autism. They are provided with puzzle piece forms that all start out the same, and each individual artist works toward transforming the piece into a unique work. This transformation of form recalls the way that Autism Speaks hopes to transform the perception and the existence of autism with further research.  All artwork bidding will be electronic (bring smart phone or tablet), for more information, click here.
