The Arts Programs at Autism Services, Inc. were created by CEO Veronica Federiconi in 2002, with the mission to give people with autism the opportunity to become involved in the visual and performing arts.
ASI celebrates autism as a culture, and the arts are a platform for our artists to express themselves to their communities. We provide our artists with many choices and encourage their own personal art-making methods and forms. We partner with professional artists and arts organizations to create collaborative projects, reciprocal learning opportunities, and arts events. ASI artists are established members of the Western New York arts community, achieving personal and professional milestones such as solo exhibitions, public performances, recognition, and awards.
