Mehri Davis, Founder and Director of Columbus on the Spectrum, has 20+ years of experience doing arts programming with people on the spectrum was one of 10 recipients of the Best Direct Care Professional in Ohio award in 2018, and has been published internationally in The Art of Autism, the number one resource for all things art-related, for people on the spectrum, in the world. Davis holds a Master's degree in Education, has presented and attended continuing education in the world of mental health and fine art,

and the one thing that has never changed is that everyone can make things.

When we have a building, we will provide studio space for artists to come and work, hang out, and collaborate.

So, creativity is involved because Mehri cannot live without it, and because creativity and making stuff promotes community, cooperation, confidence, growth, and social connection, which we all need.

The vast majority of people on the spectrum are full of creative ideas, however,​ these are not things that are typically celebrated in school, so the creative spirit is often completely hidden. This is where we bring that back.
