  Five new exhibits are open at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

The new exhibits showcase the work of contemporary artists confronting well-known masterpieces from art history and self-taught artists harnessing their personal experiences with autism and other developmental disorders. They reveal one artist's quest to capture the essence of water in motion and another's desire to stimulate fleeting moments of mindfulness among drivers barreling down the highway.

Danny Lichtenfeld is the Director of the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.
