About The Collection

The Frostig Collection is an ongoing series of sculptures and works on paper by some of today’s most compelling and well-known artists. The Collection was created by Frostig parents to bring a much-needed social skills program to the renowned Frostig Center in Pasadena California. The Frostig Center is recognized throughout the world as a leader in both research and the education of students with learning disabilities.  Many children with learning disabilities have a serious social disability as well. Without intervention, these children can become adults who have no friends or intimate relationships, have difficulty finding jobs or work at a job that is way below their potential, and are at risk for becoming extremely depressed and even suicidal.  Through the phenomenal sales of the 2005 Collection, the Frostig Center was able to hire a permanent Social Skills Director. With the addition of a new collection each year, the Frostig Center continues to spearhead its pilot program that will later be used in schools throughout the country. Every artwork purchased leads these exceptional children to experience happier, more fulfilling lives.
