The Fonds Duvel Moortgat exhibition at the MADmusée in Liege, Belgium features 42 works made by Creativity Explored artitsts including Charles Cruz, Daniel Green, Daniel Li, Evelyn Reyes, Lance Rivers, and Kate Thompson.

In 2014, MADmusée had an exhibition at Intuit in Chicago (USA) which initiated a unique partnership with the brewery Duvel Moortgat. During the next three years, the brewery group will support the acquisition policy of the MADmusée in the United States.. Those acquisitions gave birth to the Duvel Moortgat Fund, a remarkable collection that counts at present time around 275 works, made by mentally impaired artists in studios in the USA.
