I was recently at the Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, covering this story about it's Autism Center and the push to become a Patient Centered Medical Home for families affected by the disorder.

I immediately noticed the bright, vibrant art that adorns the walls with inspiring slogans such as: "Different is Beautiful" and "Giving Changes Everything."  Turns out, these are creations by a Greenwich artist named Eytan Nisinzweig who is quite well-known for his artistic and musical abilities.

Take a look at EytanArt and you will be truly moved by this 27 year old's mission to educate and inspire others.  He works with his mom, a social worker with an informative blog about autism, who "is committed to helping kids and adults feel accepted and respected in their homes, schools, communities and their world."
