When do you feel fabulous?!

Fabulous is a group exhibition that celebrates fashion, fame, identity, and queer culture with glamorous portrait paintings, wearable, multi-media hats, gender-bending drawings, and a full-size hot pink cardboard drum kit.

This artist-curated show started with Sara O'Sullivan’s love of drag queens and grew to encompass all things over-the-top, flashy, and out-of-the-box, with the curatorial contributions of artist Whitman Donaldson and two Creativity Explored staff members.

Over 15 Creativity Explored artists made work for this show, which coincides with San Francisco PRIDE week. This exhibit boldly shows how wonderfully diverse self-expression can be. Join us and dress in whatever way brings out the Fabulous-ness in you!
