David Prowler, President of CE's Board of Directors, curated this new exhibition to connect Creativity Explored and the San Francisco Zen Center.

Both institutions offer unique ways to see and experience the world beyond the "in your face" workaday one.

The artwork was chosen to give a glimpse of a transcendent reality--one that is embodied in the spirit and legacy of both institutions.

The included artworks represent the beginnings of a dialog about transcendence that Prowler hopes will resonate into the future.

TRANSCENDENT features artwork by Samedi DjeimgueroRicardo EstellaJohn Patrick McKenzieLance RiversKevin RoachYukari SakuraHung Kei ShiuAna Maria VidalonRichard Wright, and Alexander Yeap.
