Naperville, Illinois (February 23, 2015) – Naperville-based arts organization, ArranmoreArts demonstrated the power of creativity at this year’s Auto Show. Commissioned by Turning Pointe Autism Foundation to curate an art installation for the Foundation’s Gala, ArranmoreArts conceived a piece that highlights the creative abilities of Turning Pointe’s students.

“We wanted to include the students and show how much they have to offer and communicate in their own way,” says ArranmoreArts Founder and Executive Director, Shannon Greene Robb.
The piece, dubbed “Dragon” by the kids who helped create it is a collaboration of local artist, Joseph Gagnepain (Art by Joseph) and a host of students served by Turning Pointe, all of whom have been diagnosed with some form of autism. Using upcycled auto parts, paint and other materials, Gagnepain and the students collaborated to create the multi-faceted piece, including a large iron and steel sculpture.
