Full Description
For more than forty years, the Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, California, has been giving disabled adults the opportunity to make art. As the world's oldest and largest center of its kind, Creative Growth's history mirrors the evolution of a growing disability rights movement and an increased interest in self-taught art. This book provides an expansive visual overview of the organisation's projects and artists, and contains new essays from international contributors including musician/artist David Byrne and Creative Growth Director Tom di Maria. From its humble beginnings in its founder's home, to its current international design, museum, and fashion partnerships, the book is a visual history of Creative Growth's most noted projects and artists, including Dan Miller, William Scott, and Judith Scott. Published with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, this publication provides critical information about how the art of people with developmental disabilities is being increasingly recognised as an important part of the contemporary art world.
