In just 25 years, Creativity Explored has earned a reputation as one of San Franciscos best art galleries and one of its most beloved arts organizations. Creativity Explored is more than just a gallery and a studio; its 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 May 1 through June 18. Quarter Century will feature many treasured artworks set aside over the years for the gallerys permanent collection, highlights from past exhibitions including the critically acclaimed Dont Call Me Retard and select pieces from the traveling Steele Art Collection. The exhibition also offers fans of some of Creativity Exploreds most highly regarded and widely collected artists such as John Patrick McKenzie, Michael Bernard Loggins, Douglas Sheran and Vincent Jackson a chance to see early works that trace their creative evolution.
