Summer at the Museums!
We kick off our 40th year anniversary with an exciting schedule of summer exhibitions and museum programs.
It all starts here in our home Gallery as we celebrate the achievements of two of CG’s most acclaimed artists – Dan Miller and William Scott. Together, these two young men represent CG in numerous worldwide collections, most notably the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Their achievement is an outstanding one for any artist, even more so when the path that Dan and William took to reach that pinnacle is fully considered.
Not too many years ago, it was a rare occurrence to have an artist with a developmental disability in an exciting contemporary exhibition. This summer marks a new level of engagement with CG artists presenting their work in no less than four museum exhibitions.
Please join us for the following:
June 11 is the opening at the Hayward Gallery in London of the Alternative Guide to the Universe – featuring work by William Scott, who is also designing the poster, banner and catalog cover for this major European exhibition.
Opening on June 15 – Creative Growth artists are featured in an exhibition at the Sonoma County Museum, with public programs and a lecture on July 18.
Heading to Florida this summer? We are! The Create exhibition from the UC Berkeley Art Museum travels to the Boca Raton Museum of Art. It runs from July 29 to September 22, and I’ll be speaking there on August 27 and 28 too.
We are also excited to present two exhibitions in Kentucky this September. The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in Louisville presents Dan Miller and Judith Scott in an exhibit curated by Matthew Higgs and first presented at the Aldrich Museum in Connecticut, and a September solo show by John Martin opens that same month at Institute 193 in Lexington.
Plan your road trip carefully – I hope to see as many of you as possible at these events soon.
