Light it Up Blue, An Autism Awareness Day of Commemoration

Tuesday, April 2

On this special day, we will color the city blue in honor of Autism Awareness! As part of the Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue initiative, the city will be lit to show our support of families with a child on the spectrum. Activities in the museum will help to educate and support visitors. Specially designed activities will help to support the cause and educate families.

  • Smart Art: Art It Up Blue! All day in the art studio your child will participate in colored themed activities from sponge painting to Blue Nacht art inspired by Paul Klee, and even a special sensory bin full of blue things to touch and explore. 
  • Sensational Story Time (10:30 am): In My Mind: The World through the Eyes of Autism > In my mind, I see many colors, bright like a rainbow, shooting about like comets in a night sky. Take a closer look What do you see? In My Mind, by Adonya Wong, explores the inner world of an autistic child the world that no one else can see. From exciting adventures to silly games and conversations with friends, look closely and see how a child with autism sees the world and how the world sees him. 
  • Play Partners from Center for Autism (11:00am-12: 30 pm): Join us in Orange Plaza as our partners from the Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders share some special activities with our guests that will highlight the strengths and special abilities that some of the children on the spectrum possess.
