Inspired by the professional profiles on the LinkedIn platform, we are proud to present a new exhibition in which artists with developmental disabilities envision themselves, their peers, and other famous artists in their own unique visual vocabularies.

Presented with egalitarian vision in the new InCommon community engagement space at the LinkedIn headquarters in San Francisco, the exhibition offers viewers a new perspective of Creativity Explored  artists as they create and celebrate their own artistic identities.

The exhibition promotes homogeneity between artists, placing side by side Picasso, Yayoi Kusama and Creativity Explored artists, such as Nita Hicks and Steven Liu, manifesting a more inclusive and expansive definition of the “art creator.”

To see the exhibit, simply check with the reception desk in the lobby of the LinkedIn building during regular business hours (9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday).

Featured artists include: Eric Boysaw, Kevin Chu, Peter Delira,Christina Marie Fong, Daniel Green, Joseph “JD” Green, Nita Hicks,Loren King, Steven Liu, John Patrick McKenzie, Jason Monzon,Cheryle Rutledge, Joe Yuen, Yang “Buurin” Yu Zhen

Linkedin is featuring artwork from local nonprofit, Creativity Explored, with all of the proceeds going to their artists.
