Frankie Pfeiffer is a 12-year-old Colorado 6th grade boy who’s on the autism spectrum. For him and other non-traditional learners, getting educated in an in-person physical classroom setting can be difficult. Like all kids in the spring of 2020, he was forced into distance learning at home during the COVID-19 pandemic creating even greater challenges.
As part of his remote education, Frankie was blessed to receive instruction from Will Day, the acclaimed Boulder contemporary artist, who helped facilitate the creation of this piece.
“Colorado amidst the panic” is Frankie's abstract painting depicting a whirl-wind of chaos and destruction being experienced during the coronavirus pandemic with a ray of hope emanating from the colors of the Colorado state flag.
Frankie and his family want to share this ray of hope with you and the many families of special needs children with proceeds (after printing, postage and material costs) going to support the Autism Society of Boulder County and Imagine! Colorado.
Those who donate $40 or more will receive a limited edition lithograph of Frankie's painting. Prints will be produced in June and should be delivered sometime in July.
Thank you for your support of others during this difficult time!!
