Museum of Art/WSU Presents CREATE: Art by Artists Outside the Mainstream
The Museum of Art/WSU is thrilled to present CREATE: Art by Artists Outside the Mainstream, January 23 – April 5, 2014 in the Museum of Art Gallery. There will be an opening reception Thursday, January 30, 6-8 pm in the Museum of Art/WSU Gallery. As always, all exhibitions at the Museum are free and open to the public.
Create is a major group exhibition presenting an exceptional selection of the most important works created over the past twenty years by artists involved with the three pioneering non-profit organizations: Creativity Explored, Creative Growth Art Center, and the National Institute for Art and Disabilities Art Center (NIAD). These organizations were founded with the belief that exceptional creativity can emerge in anyone and they support the work of artists with developmental disabilities through a unique and highly successful approach to group studio practice. “The artists featured in this exhibition—all of whom have some form of developmental disability—possess the talent, independence, and depth of feeling that makes the most powerful art possible,” says curator Lawrence Rinder.
Create is a traveling exhibition curated by Lawrence Rinder, with Matthew Higgs, and organized by the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and ICI (Independent Curators International), New York. The exhibition and the accompanying catalog were made possible, in part, by Dr. James B. Pick and Dr. Rosalyn M. Laudati, and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees. Additional support for the tour is made possible in part by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, and the ICI Board of Trustees.
The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays and closed on Sundays.
