Don't Call Me Retard

October 16 - November 22, 2002

Creativity Explored

San Francisco, CA

Signature Postcard

In celebration of Disability Awareness Month, Creativity Explored presents Don't Call Me Retard, an exhibition about disability. This theme affords member artists the opportunity to give voice to the experiences, issues and daily realities of life with a disability and will encourage the public to examine their own perceptions of this minority population. Not only will a variety of artwork concerning disability -- from prints to paintings to animation -- be exhibited, but the audience will be able to read about and hear the thoughts and viewpoints of member artists. Most importantly the audience will be encouraged to respond to what they've seen by recording their own thoughts opinions and notions relating to disabilities making this our most interactive exhibit to date. Artists exhibited include Gordon Shepard, Thanh Diep, Warren Jee, Michael Bernard Loggins, Toby Calonico, and other studio artists. This exhibition is curated by Francis Kohler, Creativity Explored Art Instructor.
