2021 evening of arts
for autism: renewal

evolve's annual gallery show & fundraiser

Since our 2013 inaugural year, the Evening of Arts for Autism has raised in excess of $64,000.00 for young autistic and neurodiverse adults in the Pittsburgh region.  

Evolve Coaching works to provide highly customized one-on-one support to these young adults as they pursue their artistic, college and career dreams.

The funds that we raise go towards providing coaching scholarships because we believe that Everyone Has Talents to Share.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank those who made this event possible: our generous Event Sponsors.

Circus is a movement that fosters community, artistry, fitness, and joy in anyone adventurous enough to give it a try.
