The Frostig Collection


Frostig-Collection-2005-300x199The Frostig Collection launched an unprecedented concept: an on-going collection of predominantly  small-scale sculptures, sold in limited editions and  created by renowned California artists to raise funds for social skills programs for children with learning disabilities, Aspergers and high-functioning autism. What started as a one time fundraising endeavor by Celia & Chris Piazza, parents of a child with Aspergers, to bring a social skills program into the renowned Frostig Center in Pasadena California, has grown into a highly regarded on-going art collection.  Curator Kate Stern and Founder, Celia Piazza have worked hand in hand for 9 years cultivating, producing, and selling the expansive art collection.
