Quarter Century

April 30 - June 17, 2008

Creativity Explored

San Francisco, CA

Images and artwork from the Creativity Explored archives.

In just 25 years, Creativity Explored has earned a reputation as one of San Francisco's best art galleries and one of its most beloved arts organizations. Creativity Explored is more than just a gallery and a studio; it's a spirited community of artists with developmental disabilities creating some of the most profound, fearless and innovative art on view in galleries today.

This May marks the 25th year that this extraordinary art center has been changing lives through art. To celebrate this important milestone, the gallery hosts a rare display of its archives and permanent collection. Quarter Century will feature many rarely seen artworks created in the gallery over the last few years, highlights from past exhibitions, and select pieces included in the traveling Steele Art Collection. The exhibition also offers fans of some of our most highly regarded and widely collected artists such as John Patrick McKenzie, Michael Bernard Loggins, and Vincent Jackson a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see early works that trace their creative evolution. Videos made by and about the artists will also be a featured part of the display.

Thanks to our sponsor, Wachovia.
