Indulge in a Holiday Feast for the eyes!

When you’re visiting Union Square this season, tour the Kiosk Museum to enjoy five courses of Creativity Explored artwork. The Parisian style kiosks sprinkled along downtown sidewalks have been transformed into mini-museum displays that will feature scrumptious CE artwork.

From imaginative ceramic cupcakes to digital drawings of favorite foods, Holiday Feast is an eclectic collection of culinary-inspired artwork by Andrew Bixler, Camille Holvoet, Jesus Huezo, Hector Lopez, Quintin Rodriguez, Yukari Sakura, and Miyuki Tsurukawa. Whether you’re shopping Union Square for holiday gifts or skating the ice rink, take a walk around the plaza and treat yourself to a sampling of CE art!

About the Kiosk Museum:

Community Arts International has been developing museum exhibitions in unexpected venues for over thirty years. They brought the concept of popular arts to museums, starting at The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco where they exhibited disposable Pop Art, including Andy Warhol paper dresses and Peter Max bed sheets. In collaboration with HOK and JCDecaux , they now bring art to the streets of San Francisco by converting the unused newsstand kiosks into Kiosk Museums.

As we wander the city, standing at a bus stop or waiting in line, we invariably look to our mobile devices for distraction. But anywhere one looks–in shop windows, restaurant counters, stacked in the corner of a room–there are aesthetic vignettes to enjoy. The goal of the Kiosk Museum project is to capture and contextualize these moments, creating a museum experience in these repurposed diminutive urban spaces that never close.

Untitled by Marilyn Wong, 2013 © Creativity Explored Licensing, LLC, mixed media on paper, 23 x 28.75 inches

We are proud to announce Marilyn Wong: Catching Spirit, the first solo exhibition of work by Marilyn Wong.

In her over 30 year career, Marilyn Wong (b. 1949) has developed an exceptional artistic vision. The exhibition highlights the range and depth of Marilyn Wong’s artistic practice with a focus on recent works on paper, from 2010 to the present.

Wong translates an enduring captivation with pop culture, from icons like Elvis to Prince to popular cinema, including 60’s Beach Party and martial arts films, into densely layered compositions, built with complex linework pulsing with vibrant color.  

Wong has established her own visual vocabulary with elaborate systems of construction that are as intricate as they are enigmatic. With her compelling, singular style, Wong has developed an impressive body of work. When working in the studio, Wong’s momentum is unwavering. When the spirit moves her, she is a force to be reckoned with.

Wong joined the CE studio in 1985. Her artwork has been widely exhibited in a number of group exhibitions around the world, including  Art and Advocacy: To Be Developmentally Disabled (TBD) at the California Museum (Sacramento, 2017), Resonating Resonance at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art (Japan, 2016), and Bay Area Now 7 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, 2014). In 2018 Wong's work was featured in Mind Place, a group exhibition at the CE gallery, and most recently in 6 Women: Female Voices from Creativity Explored at the Marriott Stanton Hotel in South Beach, Florida.
