This year, the Mandel JCC Arts & Culture Program is privileged to exhibit a retrospective of the work of Cleveland artist Seth Chwast in conjunction with”An Evening of Classical Music & Art.” The exhibit opens Sunday, May 3, 2009 at 6:00pm in The Mandel JCC’s Stonehill Auditorium, and a “Meet the Artist” opening reception begins at 6:30pm. Both are free to all concert ticket holders.

Diagnosed with autism as a very young child, Chwast, now 25, rarely speaks but has found his voice through painting. With his innate ability to mix colors and reflect the world around him, Chwast has garnered national and international attention. His work has been exhibited at University Hospital of Case Western Reserve University and at the Cleveland Clinic, in New York City and in the Galapagos Islands and Cayman Islands. Bursting with color, his art conveys his contagious sense of joy, happiness and beauty, and his story inspires.
