Artwork for the poster is selected by a submission and judging process and is open to any Texas artist with a disability.
November 25, 2013 – Had a surprise visit from my friend Grant Manier who arrived bearing a gift. The puzzle is the symbol for Autism and this is one of his originals, created using many pieces of paper and the print off of puzzle pieces. Grant is one of Houston’s up-and-coming eco-artists and a very fine young man. If you are not familiar with his work, please check out his website. http://www.grantsecoart.com/. Thank you Grant for this special gift, I am honored.
