All submissions will be sold at the show to benefit Sam’s Voice, an organization started by a NJ family whose youngest son, Sam, is impacted by autism – he’s currently 6 and non-verbal, although he recently started using a Dynavox to communicate to some degree.  In April of 2012, Hagrid, an autism service dog, came into their lives and changed them forever.    Hagrid has been an absolute miracle for the family, and they started “Sam’s Voice” to raise funds for Heeling Autism & help other families bring service dogs into their lives.

Boxed In will donate 100% of proceeds above the costs of the show to Sam’s Voice.  Submissions have come in so far from NJ, TX, FL, CA, and we have commitments from artists all over the country and even internationally, but our goal is to collect 1,000 submissions – so we need your help! Please consider creating a piece – see the submission details at the link below – and please let every artist you know about this great opportunity to show their work and support a great cause at the same time!

You can visit the show page on Facebook by searching "Boxed In Art Show" once you're on FB – it will provide links to the show website, or e-mail paula.shaughnessy@yahoo.com for additional details.
