Puzzle art for the Family Division will be provided by Devin Wildes, a 24-year-old accomplished artist with autism. From sculpture, videography, jewelry making, screen printing, and painting in multiple mediums, Devin has the unique ability to express himself vividly through art. He has won several Davinci Fest awards, a Midwest Region Emmy, and his art has premiered in local galleries in Stillwater, Minn. Devin’s artistic talents have been highlighted by PBS and in the Pioneer Press, the Star Tribune, and Architectural Digest.
