ART AND AUTISM: In its efforts to help children and adults with developmental disabilities, the Morgan Autism Center often turns to art as an expressive outlet, and the results are impressive (pictured is a drawing by Kolya Aiken-Forder). To raise money for its work and to showcase the art created by its students, the center hosts 'Starry Starry Night,' featuring an art auction, live music by Opera San Josť and a wine/martini/champagne bar with plenty of appetizers and desserts. The event takes place Saturday (Oct. 20), 6:30–10pm at Le Petit Trianon Theatre, 72 N. Fifth St., San Jose. Tickets are $75; call 408.241.8161 for details.
