Max and Louis Boyang are 11-year-old identical twins (BoyangTwins.com) whose artwork inspires fascination and awe. They have won national awards in adult competitions and exhibitions and their artwork has been exhibited in fine art galleries across the country. (Background on the family and why they're doing the fundraiser and directions to find the location on the SLU campus can be found below the schedule.)

The event will feature a reception to meet the family with wine and passed hors d'oeuvres.  The Boyang Twins will then provide an art workshop.  Supplies will be provided so people in attendance can learn from the twins and experiment.  The event will also have a silent auction on art pieces donated by the family.

The Boyang Twins' father, Dr. Hongbing Wang, is a scientist and associate professor in the Department of Physiology at Michigan State University and attended the University of Washington for his post-doctoral training. His lab focuses on understanding how neuronal signaling regulates brain plasticity and learning. His research identified pathological factors involved in neurological disorders such as Fragile X syndrome and Autism. The Boyang Twins know about their father’s research on autism which directed their decision to give back to UW through supporting the UW Autism Center.
