Eric Nelson is a highly motivated ball of wonder. Obsessed with iconic vehicles, classic buildings and current events, he builds incredible cardboard sculptures and intriguing paintings. His work is simple and direct and comes across as sort of a stylized folk-like pop art.
Established in 1994, Pyramid, Inc. is comprised of five Adult Day Training centers in five Florida cities: Tampa, Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, and Tallahassee.
Originally established to provide meaningful day activities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Pyramid is widely known today for its exciting and unique focus on the visual and performing arts.
And while the organization remains committed to serving those with severe disabilities whose cognitive, physical and behavioral characteristics do not lend themselves to traditional learning strategies, Pyramid continues to seek new ways to engage students, to provide an environment in which they can find excitement and meaning.
Through the arts and other programs, Pyramid offers students the opportunity to earn a paycheck, develop a new social role, win the respect of the public, and to gain the social skills, work ethic and other skills necessary to lead full productive lives as active members of their communities.
