GREENWICH, Conn. -- The walls at Greenwich restaurant Meli-Melo Creperie & Juice Bar are decorated with artwork that helps out area nonprofits.

The current exhibit runs through Sept. 1 and features black and white photography by Danielle O'Brien. Fifteen percent of the sales will benefit Friends of Autistic People (FAP). The Greenwich grassroots organization works to improve the lives of children and adults with autism.

Founder Brita Darany von Regensburg formed FAP to help families "navigate the system," and advocate for and intervene on behalf of their children with autism.

"I have a long history of partnering with businesses in town and am honored to be involved with such a creative program and artist. Danielle's photography is truly magical and she has a great eye for detail," Darany von Regensburg said.

The money will support a music therapy program for kids and adults with autism.

Self-taught photographer O'Brien is a native of Rockland County, N.Y. She has a background in biology and her career has been working in laboratories and the consumer products industry.
