FREE exhibitions feature dynamic works of art created by individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. The images in this exhibition are powerful and moving, both for the viewers and the artists. The works are testaments to the important role art has in self expression and empowerment. FREE believes that art is an expressive outlet that fortifies the artists successful, ongoing contributions to their communities. 2018 is the sixth year FREE has exhibited artwork at the Patchogue-Medford Library.
