Creative Growth Art Center, Oakland



RECLAIMING: A NEW ASYLUM
OPENS NEXT THURSDAY, JANUARY 23!

Reclaiming: A New Asylum includes rarely seen works by artists for whom a history of institutionalization informs private visions and an intent to communicate initiated far outside popular culture or the contemporary art world. This exhibition highlights the early days of the Creative Growth studio, and serves as an introduction to this visionary environment that encouraged creativity above all else.

Presenting works by artists who have participated in the Creative Growth program since its first days, including Dwight Mackintosh, Regina Broussard, George Kellogg, Lolita Triplette, Judith Scott, Louis Estape, Camille Holvoet, Donald Paterson, William Tyler and Nelson Tygart.

Also on view: In Memoriam, featuring an intimate selection of work honoring Creative Growth artists who have recently passed away, curated by Studio instructors Matt Dostal and Kathleen Henderson.
